I don't know if you or anyone else has any tips for making them more firm? Maybe a whole new recipe and not using the potato?

Anyway, here was the end result, looks ok, tastes ok but just not sure about the consistency.

May I suggest this recipe?

A classic Maryland style crab cake!
Ingredients:
1 lb. crab meat (backfin or lump)
2 slices bread (crust removed)
milk
1 egg beaten
1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. parsley flakes
1 tsp. prepared mustard
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. Old Bay
1/4 tsp. salt

Instructions:
In bowl, break bread into small pieces and moisten with milk. Add all remaining ingredients except crab and mix. Pick over crab meat to remove shell particles. Add crab meat to mixture, mixing gently but thoroughly. Shape into six patties and chill 30 minutes. Pan fry in a little butter or oil until brown on each side or broil in oven until browned.

The crab cakes , ribs and wings look amazing! I wish I could try them all! The crab cake sauce reminds me of a tomato raisin chutney I used to make for pork chops- similar consistency. It must be 10 years since I made it last, I forgot about it. I'll have to pull out the recipe because it was very good.

Beef with onions, garlic, baby carrots and herbs in the pressure cooker, Italian green beans, mashed potatoes, iced tea and pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing for dessert. It was tasty and the house still smells good.
