      This was very good and definately a "make again." I must make bigger patties than normal. I made "hamburger size" patties and doubled the recipe in order to have enough to feed my family of 5. Thanks Rhonda for the treat.

      Rhonda O, the crab cakes are wonderful! The sauce was too tame for us, but that's an easy fix! : ) As my husband needs gluten-free, this was a welcome find. Thank you!

      This was a wonderful recipie. My hubby & I both loved the flavor. You could actually taste the crab. So many crab cake recipies taste like bread crumbs. Not this one. I did not use the coconut & I didn't make the sauce. I am sure they would be a welcome addition to the meal but they honestly don't need them. I would like to warn you that I ended up using more chips to coat with than the recipie called for. Also, The crab mixture is very moist before the final coating of chips and I wondered if I had done some thing wrong but I just coated in the chips and put into the hot oil and everything worked out wonderful. Thanks for the recipie & hope everone likes it as much as I do.
