Around here it seems like a really good crab cake at a restaurant is hard to find. However, my husband grew up near the Eastern shore, aka, crab country, and he has learned how to make really tasty crab cakes. Lump crab meat is essential, and it can be pretty pricey. Still, when you are going to a party, and that’s all you are contributing, you may not mind shelling out a few extra bucks, to share this yummy treat with your family and friends.
I did just that recently at a party my brother and sister-in-law were having for my niece’s birthday.
Using my husband’s recipe that I tweaked just a little, I made mini crab cakes as an appetizer for the party. The recipe makes 18 crab cakes.
I love the flavor of lemon thyme. It’s bright and savory and once you try it you will certainly look for other ways to add it to your cooking. This dip could also be used with veggies, fresh fish or grilled shrimp.
It looks like a lot of crab cakes but don’t be surprised if they get eaten up in minutes.
Since they are pretty easy to make you can easily double the recipe.
Your guests will love you for it.
