I had this crab cake at Hank's while in Charleston in March. Have always thought the best crab cakes should be as much pure crab as possible but the addition of corn kernels add wonderful sweetness and texture. Excited to find the recipe in Coastal Living and looking forward to making these at home. Recommend reservations at Hank's.
