  • In a mixing bowl, combine crab, noodles, eggs, green onion, bread crumbs, cilantro, olive oil and salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.

  • On wax paper, divide mixture into 6 equal piles; form each pile into a patty. Make sure noodles are incorporated and are not sticking out.

  • In a medium skillet, heat vegetable oil and cook patties over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side until golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve with cilantro-lime mayonnaise.

  • For the cilantro-lime mayonnaise, mix mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon cilantro, lime zest and lime juice in a small mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly. Chill until ready to serve.

The consistency texture and flavor come through on this one. It's great. Although I like the lime sauce a little less strong so I add less lime juice. Read More

This wasn't for us - sorry. The taste just wasn't there and we didn't like the texture. The mayo was too limey for us. I made this exactly the way it was stated in the recipe. Read More

Oh man these are good! I thought there were too many noodles so set some aside but them used them up as I went along so they were perfect...wasn't the prettiest looking (didn't even try to prevent noodles from sticking out) but it tastes great! Also added 1/2 a serrano pepper & some garlic. YUM! Read More

I added a little fresh chopped garlic and extra cilantro to the cakes otherwise I thought they were a little bland. I also substituted low-fat sour cream for the mayonaise and that worked very well! Read More

I wanted to make this so badly but didn't have exactly the right ingredients. Used canned crab (gasp) and ditalini noodles lite sour cream instead of mayo. It was fast and delicious!!! I could eat this everyday. Thanks for a super adaptable recipe. Keep em comin! Read More

these just didn't impress. they were too much trouble for something that tasted just "okay" and they looked unappetizing. the noodles just soaked up the oil and it was impossible to make patties without the noddle sticking out. like i said they taste fine but i won't make this again. and the cilantro-lime mayo? sorry!
