these are delicious! I made them for a dinner party and got rave reviews. The spicy mustard sauce with it was awesome!

These were wonderful...I also made these as directed without the sauce. I am not a big mayo fan, so I used a zesty cocktail sauce instead of the mustard sauce... less calories and adds a little kick! The only thing that I noticed was that it was difficult to get the even brown color with only two tbs of oil.

These crab cakes had so much flavor! They were amazing and extremely easy to make. The sauce was very yummy too. Although, my father thought it was a bit too vinegary. I also had a bit of a problem with them falling apart in the skillet, but they still turned out well. Before I flipped each crab cake, I gave them a small spray of olive oil cooking spray, and this helped both sides brown evenly. I felt like such a gourmet chef when I served these!

Yummo! I made these as directed except the sauce. I forgot the ingredient I needed. It was fabulous without the sauce! They fell apart just a bit in the pan. Need to make sure you only cook 4 at a time as stated.

Best crab cake recipie I have found. The vinegar in the sauce was a bit strong for me, so next time I might use 1/2 a teaspoon. Very yummy.

These crab cakes were fantastic and so easy to make! Two 'yums' up!! The only change I'll make next time is to put the bell pepper and onion in a food processor - I think if the pieces are chopped a bit finer, the cakes will stay together better.

These were delicious! The only change I made was to use (cheaper) canned white crab. The sauce was perfect! Only 8pts. I also served with the suggested Tomato and Arugula Salad, but I sub'd green beans for the arugula. Only 1 pt!

I served these on New Year's Eve to some friends from Seattle (fish and shellfish connoisseurs)! They were a huge success! Excellent flavor, nice heat in the sauce. I'm making them again tonight w/my leftover crab. Thumbs up all the way around. Recommend back fin meat, and I had best results keeping the cakes together by chilling them in the fridge for an hour or so before cooking.

Best crab cakes ever. Even better than places that specialize in crab cakes. I leave out the bell pepper and onion in favor of more crab taste.

Really enjoyed this, but my crab cakes sort of fell apart, what's the trick to prevent them from doing that when you saute? I used chipotle olive oil and it gave them a nice little kick. Liked the sauce a lot too. Will make again. Served with an arugula, red onion and orange salad with a raspberry balsamic vinaigrette. Yum.
