My family and I were very happy with these crab cakes! I am a beginning cook and this was my first time making crab cakes, but they still were a major hit. My older cousin said that she has had many crab cakes and this was one of the best ones she had ever had. She noted that they were especially light, as opposed to an overly rich and heaven (mayo-laden) crab cake. A few things I should note: I used 6 cans of lump crab meat (drained weight was 27 oz.). I combined this with 1/2 c. mayo and 1/2 cup of crushed crackers, as well as the seasoning, an egg, and lemon zest. this ended up making 8 fairly large crab cakes. We ate half of them just a little after shaping them (a few hrs setting in the fridge) and the we ate other half the next day for lunch. The ones we had the next day at lunch had a distinct lemon flavor, while that's not something that was prominent the previous night. I suppose that the lemon zest took on more flavor as it sat overnight.
