What’s Cooking: Crab Cakes with Remoulade Sauce

I’ve seriously been into trying new dishes for dinner in 2013. It was definitely one of my New Year’s resolutions to sit down more often as a family. One of the dishes my hubby requested was Crab Cakes made from scratch. So I pulled out my mom’s old recipe and got to work!

My whole family loves this recipe.
Ok… maybe we tell my 5 year old they’re called Chicken Cakes,
but as long as she eats them I’m happy!

    Ooh you are going to be my new hero for this! I LOVE crabcakes with an unhealthy kind of devotion, but they’re always so expensive in the stores. Totally pinning this to try it!

    I have so been craving crab cakes. I am excited to try your recipe using imitation crab. I have only made them with real but the imitation is really tasty and cheaper to boot.
