Crab Cakes: Love 'em!


I purchased a can of crab meat a couple of weeks ago when it was on sale, not knowing what I was going to use it for.  After I did some research, I realized I could make crab cakes (and homemade aioli).  Naturally, I was up to the challenge and thought it would be fun to make something new in the middle of the week.  I made these super-tasty crab cakes by slightly adapting this recipe from Allrecipes (I basically made a third of the recipe with my 6 oz can of crab meat, reduced the proportion of crackers and skipped Old Bay and cayenne pepper since I didn't have any.  I also used regular mustard instead of dry and used a light mayo).  I made aioli, a recipe I found in the comments, with my only modification there being an extra garlic clove and otherwise dividing the recipe by a third (the aioli is not pictured).  I served these crab cakes with a baked potato and broccoli, although I'm sure serving them on bread with a side of salad is also a nice alternative.   These were really tasty and did not involve much prep work other than chopping up the green onions.  Bon appetit!

May post full adapted recipe at a later date...
