I had some leftover fresh dungeness crab so I made these last night. WOW! They were amazing! Better than any crab cakes I've ever had in a restaurant. They taste so fresh and complex, unlike restaurant ones which taste greasy by comparison. I did cook them a bit differently than the recipe - I sauteed them on BOTH sides for 3 min. each and put in the oven for only about 6 min to heat thru. Fantastic! Served them with a salad and that was plenty.
Curried Corn & Crab Cakes
Many cooks think crab cakes require a lot of effort, but they're actually not difficult. And with this corn-studded version, accented with fresh lime, mint and cilantro, the time you do spend will be rewarded with raves. Browning the cakes in a skillet and then finishing them in the oven produces a crisp crust and ensures even cooking.
