My boyfriend & I wanted to try something different for dinner (a change from the ordinary casseroles, chicken, beef, etc.) so he asked me to make a seafood dish instead. We both LOVED this recipe! It was surprisingly inexpensive and easy to make (I've never made crab cakes before.) I did make a few changes though, based on previous comments on this recipe: I used a small lime instead of a medium one - that gave it just the right amount of flavor for our tastes. I also used a lot more crumbled Ritz crackers to coat each patty - that helped them stick together & cook better in the skillet. Also, the recipe says that it yields 18 cakes, but I made 8 larger cakes instead. (I think 18 cakes would be good for an appetizer party, but larger cakes were better for dinner.) I will definitely make this again - I was impressed!
