    Tasty. Did not have seafood spices so I looked up what makes up most seafood spices and added those. Will make again.

    very delicious. I substituted miracle whip for mayonnaise since that was all we gave it a nice slightly tangy taste. it didnt stick together like i would have liked but thats probably because i didnt let it sit long enough.

    Classic crab cake was pretty good but I might omit the planko and add another egg for binding.

    Will use less lemon if I make this recipe again. Family enjoyed it otherwise.

    This was a great recipe. Definitely adding into our meal rotation. I used kosher fake crab meat since we don’t eat shellfish.

    I simply added fresh parsley and they turned out great!!!! Fresh tartar sauce is also a plus. Baked is better than fried.

    Easy to make and super delicious! Family has requested already! No substitutions needed! (Made one batch with the original recipe and one modified - extra egg and one less spoon of mayo; both still yummy but original won!) Did use light mayo instead of regular.
