Ok, so I love crab cakes! But a good crab cake is hard to find. Most restaurants use too much filler (cheaper to make this way), and you have to break the bank to be able to afford them. Even if you make the crab cakes yourself it is not cheap. Crab meat is expensive! Especially if you are picky like my family and want the lump crab meat. Nevertheless, I have to have my crab cake fix every once in a while. Making your own is still far cheaper than taking your family to a restaurant to get them, and they are quick and easy to make.
