MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 7, 2013

"Unfortunately not what we had hoped for. We are big fans of crab cakes and hubby is on heart diet so looking for alternate low fat, heart healthy recipes. Saw this and decided to try since we are both big fans of crab cakes. We also like imitation crab. Although imitation crab is good in many recipes calling for crab, as much as we wanted it to, for crab cakes it just doesn't cut it in our opinion. These were just "ok". The bread crumbs did not crisp up much either. Maybe because it calls for cakes to be pre-coated with the crumbs and then chilled in frig? We will not be making these again."
