Quick Carolina Crab Cakes Recipe

I never used to make crab cakes at home until I created this recipe. They're spiced just right , and the mustard-mayo sauce is the perfect accent. —Katie P. Sloan, Charlotte, North Carolina

MY REVIEW

Very good but we used scallion instead of grated onion. Next time try reducing the filler to crab ratio.

Delicious & easy. Didn't have seafood seasoning on hand, substituted a Cajun blend. This one's a keeper!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 7, 2009

I had never made crab cakes, but knowing Taste of Home's reputation, I knew they had to be good. They were better than good, they were scrumptious and a new favorite!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 28, 2009

you need to be careful not to put the canola oil in the mix. Also I used "packed in foil lump crab; it didn't set well - I think it was too moist. I will use WELL DRAINED can or fresh next time. Sauce is great!
