In India I never had crab, because they always scares me. After coming to USA, oneday we went for dinner in a restaurant. 'He' already ordered 'crab cake' as appetizer when I went to restroom. I really got upset after returning because I had no idea that crab cake is made of crab meat only. But when they served two cakes in a plate, the platter really impressed me. The taste was phenomenal and most important they didn't scare me at all. After that dinner I tried it in many other restaurants also and fell in love with crab meat (not whole crab). Last weekend I made these cakes at home and they came out delicious. Try this in your kitchen and let me know how it turns out.
