“Crab” A Cake And Join The Party
For some funny reason I still don’t understand, I was a teenager the first time I ever tasted a crab cake.
I honestly don’t know why – maybe it was because my family is from Europe and I grew up eating all these traditional European recipes. Crab cakes were never on the menu and somehow I had missed them at all the parties, too. But ever since I had my first taste, they became a staple in our dinner rotation! When I got married and we moved into our own house, I made sure I was bringing this recipe with me.
This is a no-hassle, no-odd stuff, no-kidding recipe. What you see is what you get and that means lots of flavor from crab instead of common fillers that people tend to add to crab cake recipes. So, no potatoes in this one – just incredibly yummy aromas!
However, I definitely like to serve these with potatoes! It doesn’t really matter what kind; smashed, baked or just French fries. I often go for smashed potatoes because the flavors seem to complement each other so well.
