These were my first attempt at crab cakes, and I was pleased with the recipe. I did as several previous reviewers suggested and used Ritz crackers instead of saltines, and coated the cakes in panko bread crumbs before frying. The panko bread crumb coating really added crunch and flavor, I couldn't imagine these without it! Since we're on a budget, I used imitation crab (made out of fish) broken into lumps; I'm sure it's better with the real thing, but we wanted to try these without breaking the bank. I wasn't sure they would hold together at first and had to place them in the oil very gently, but they firmed up very well as they fried, and were easy to flip without breaking. I served them with the "Remoulade Sauce a la New Orleans" from this site, as suggested and it complemented them perfectly!
