These were incredible! Simply every bit as good as what you would expect to get in a fine restaurant. I bought the cans of crabmeat at Wal-Mart, and paid only $1.50 for each, making this recipe as affordable as it is delicious. I made a couple of small changes. I used Italian style breadcrumbs (all I had), and I omitted the red pepper and substituted with more green bell pepper. I served these with an mango relish that I improvised, and it was a great combination. I chopped one mango, added about 2 Tbsp. finely chopped green bell pepper, 1/2 small can of chopped pineapple, 1/2 green apple, peeled and finely chopped, juice of 1 lime, 1 Tbsp. apple jelly, 1/2 serrano pepper (finely chopped and no seeds), a small handful of chopped cilantro, and a teaspon of sugar. Pureed a small portion of the mixture, and then mixed that back in with the rest. The crabcakes had a wonderful flavor all on their own, but with the addition of the salsa, it was over-the-top amazing! Definitely worthy of serving to company or a/o you want to indulge. Thanks, Lori, for a great crabcake recipe. I will make this again and again.
