we may have some different tastes in crab cakes - and crab per se. Dungeness crab and blue claw are different tastes.
I've never had any luck with the mayo based crab cake binders.
it always turns out to be crab hash . . .
(long story omitted . . . ) I've gone back to the basics.
blue claw crab, egg with a dab of creamy horse radish, Old Bay, bit of onion/roasted red pepper.
a smidge of panko if it's too wet.
that's it - period. no more thousand ingredient crab cakes.
There you go. Simple, yummy, crabby goodness
