Crab Cakes

This is one of our family recipes, and our family just loves crab cakes. We found far too many restaurants served bad ones, which were too expensive and frankly, devoid of crab. Our solution was to experiment until we found the ones we could love, and included a Louis Sauce that made them even more delicious.

This recipe will produce 6 crab cakes so it is an appetizer for 6 or meal for 3.
