Crab cakes with an Asian twist. Delicious served on arugula or your favorite greens. Warm cakes will wilt greens. Drizzle with sauce and a pinch of salt. Sprinkle with sesame seeds for garnish. Another option would be to make these as bite-size cakes and serve as an appetizer.

I made as written except used a pound of can crab due to availability and these turned out EXCELLENT! The mixture seemed a little dry at first but moistened up perfectly after an hour in the fridge. I loved the Asian flavor in this and everything about these actually. Read More

Land locked and can't find "fresh crab" so I tried with imitation. The patties didn't hold together. I even tried adding an extra egg and mayo. Read More
