I made these and the Maryland Crab Cakes I lastnight. My Dad, boyfriend, and myself all agree that these are really great, and our preference over the Maryland style. However, I did cut the chiligarlic down to 1 tsp, and served them with a soy/hoisin/chiligarlic sauce on the side. Very flavorful, the crab was maybe a bit overwhelmed though. Next time I will use less rice and more crab to get more crab flavor. The patties were less firm than the Maryland, maybe because of excess water from the rice. I will definitely make these again for more people, as they warmed nicely in the oven so they can be prepared ahead of time. Oh, I used fresh dungeness crab for this.
This recipe is completely worth trying! I loved the slight spiciness. next time I will make it a little hotter, maybe add some chilies. The fish sauce and cilantro add a flare that I have never had with crab cakes. I served it with wasabi mayonnaise but it hardly needed anything accompanying it.
Excellant flavor. Will make this a regular as crab price allows!
This was awful. Luckily there was enough rice in it to salvage it as a side.
A great twist on the typical crab cake. I used white rice (all I had) and added about 2 extra ounces of crab meat. It was great!
