I’ve never made crab cakes at home before this attempt. I don’t know why exactly. I guess I thought they would be difficult to make, or take too much time. Crab cakes just seemed like something that wouldn’t be worth the trouble at home. Consider my mind completely changed. They come together so quickly, and except for the crab itself, everything I needed was already in the pantry. From the time I started to the time I put the baking sheet in the oven was maybe five minutes at the most. Oh, I almost forgot to mention, these are oven baked, not fried. Really, five minutes of prep time in exchange for an over the top meal like this? I’ll take that any day.
