Nothing like crisp crabcakes in the summertime. I love them so much, and the best thing is there is so many ways to eat them: plain; as a sandwich; as a taco; the possibilities are endless. I decided to have them with some homemade slaw and eat them as is. Instead of frying them, I baked them which, not only made them crispier, but also “lighter” as they were not greasy and that allowed me to eat more of them. Try yours today!
