  • There are lots of recipes for crab cakes and they're all yummy.

    Lump crabmeat, sauteed trinity (chopped celery, onion and bell pepper), a little garlic, a little cayenne, salt and pepper and a very little oregano and thyme, some bread crumbs and some mayonnaise...fry up neat little palm size flattened cakes in a blend of extra virgin olive oil and butter.

    I serve them with corn/tomato salsa.
