We've an abundance of crabs in coastal Louisiana. I know no one who has ever turned one of these down. Chill time not included. NOTE: For all the years that I've made these crab cakes, just recently I've used cracker crumbs in place of the breadcrumbs in the recipe and for the exterior coating and think that I might perfer that even more so.
