Crab Cakes

I’ve been craving crab cakes lately so when I saw a container of lump crab meat at Costco, I instantly knew what I would be making for dinner. I wanted to taste the crab not a bunch of fillers so I kept the crab mixture really simple. I made the cakes small so they would stay together nicely. I only cooked them in a small bit of olive oil and they tasted great without being greasy. The cakes were filled with big lumps of crab and the flavor was delicious. I can’t wait to buy more of this crab and make different recipes. I served leftover tzatziki sauce as a dip but honestly, the crab cakes were so good we didn’t really use it.
