There are so many ways to go with 'em i.e. - sometimes I add potatoes & chopped artichokes or diced avacado to the mix, or a different dressing like remoulade or peanut sauce. Crab cakes Rock! Thanks for sharing the pic.
thanks for the suggestions... im DEFINETLY going to try the avocado in there next time.

I also didnt go heavy on egg or crubs. 1 beaten egg and 3 oz of cracker crumbs. the cakes were very crab heavy. id also suggest against using ANY salt. as these can be very easy to overseason

Hi jj, usually we make ours, and we are in blue crab country, with very little binder.

But there are other recipes that add a bit more stuff, seems you are interested in the avocado, and they also taste great. OK, they are not the crab cake purist's version, but they are tasty.
