A friend sent me this recipe via Pinterest, and I had to try it! I already make a really good faux-crab cake recipe, but this one is a tiny bit different. It uses butter and onion, plus you dip them in flour before frying, so they get a nice crisp crust on them. These were good! Really good! That onion does make a difference! And the crisp crust does, too! We all liked these. Next time I am doubling the recipe so I can have leftovers!
