For seriously tasty crab cakes,we need just crab and a little seasoning.
90% crab and 10% seasoning is what I'm talking about.Do not be tempted to add anything else okay.
Adding potato,peppers,ginger,garlic and other fillers totally ruin the delicate flavour of crab cakes.
So please please please skip it.PLEASE.
