    I love to make copy cats from restaurants so I can have them whenever I want. These are very good as posted but for a change you might like to add chopped green onion and/or red bell pepper. I serve these with my Roasted Garlic Aioli recipe.

      These are great! I've never had crab cakes before, let alone the ones from Joe's Crab Shack so I have nothing to compare them to but they are quite tasty. I had to make some changes based on the ingredients I had in the cupboards. I used about 1/2 cup of dry stove-top mix as I ran out of breadcrumbs, substituted a couple dashes of hot sauce for the pepper flakes and omitted the Old Bay seasoning completely as they don't seem to sell it at any of the stores here. I also didn't bother coating them in flour, and I pan-fried mine in olive oil as I'm trying to watch my weight. Thanks for sharing!

      As a life long maryland resident and crab cake lover I have to say this recipe has great flavor and tatste and really easy to make. I used Jumbo Lump Backfin Blue Crab meat of course. I also grilled them to help reduce the fat content and they were GREAT. They would work well broiled and for those not concerned with their diet I bet they are wonderful fried. The best part is they were even better the next day. We had cooked too many. I know hard to beleive and had to refrigerate some till the next day. I usually don't like left over reheated crab cakes. The wife and I both agreed these were even better the second day. Next time we will cook them and refrigerate them, and eat them the second day. Thanks for a GREAT recipe.

      Good, but way too spicy for me. I would cut the black pepper down to 1/4 Teasponn, omit the red pepper, and offer a spicy sauce on the side.
