Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place pasta in boiling water and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and cut into 1 inch pieces.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine crab, noodles, eggs, green onion, bread crumbs, cilantro, olive oil and salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
  3. On wax paper, divide mixture into 6 equal piles; form each pile into a patty. Make sure noodles are incorporated and are not sticking out.
  4. In a medium skillet, heat vegetable oil and cook patties over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side until golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve with cilantro-lime mayonnaise.
  5. For the cilantro-lime mayonnaise, mix mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon cilantro, lime zest and lime juice in a small mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly. Chill until ready to serve.

The consistency, texture, and flavor come through on this one. It's great. Although, I like the lime sauce a little less strong so I add less lime juice.

we made the crab cake sauce also, everyone liked that sauce better. this needs to be kicked up somehow. but we will use it agian with the other sauce. it makes a great presentation and the lime is a great contrast to the other sauce

Mmm. So delicious and, like she said, very easy to prepare. Cakes were kind of small. Next time, I'll make them bigger. Yum.

Oh man these are good! I thought there were too many noodles so set some aside but them used them up as I went along so they were perfect...wasn't the prettiest looking (didn't even try to prevent noodles from sticking out) but it tastes great! Also added 1/2 a serrano pepper & some garlic. YUM!

I added a little fresh chopped garlic and extra cilantro to the cakes, otherwise I thought they were a little bland. I also substituted low-fat sour cream for the mayonaise and that worked very well!

Delicious! Did not seem to want to hold together at first, but once in the frying pan held together nicely. Cilantro-Lime Mayo was superb!

I wanted to make this so badly, but didn't have exactly the right ingredients. Used canned crab (gasp) and ditalini noodles, lite sour cream instead of mayo. It was fast and delicious!!! I could eat this everyday. Thanks for a super adaptable recipe. Keep em comin!

I just tried the mayonnaise (as suggested by another recipe) and it was OK, but nothing special.
