Something about summer and seafood just go hand in hand. I know that when I go down to the beach with my family, I love to indulge in some delicious fresh seafood. At home I love to get my seafood from seafood markets, but there is also nothing wrong with supermarket buys. Just make sure it looks fresh and doesn’t smell super fishy. Another great tip that I learned through the years is to ask the counter person to add ice to your seafood, this is great; especially in summer months when taking your purchase home. My kiddies were asking me to make crabs, so I told them why not crab cakes in a sandwich. They were all for it and of course the hubby had no complaints either. If you’re a lover of seafood this is a must try crab cake sandwich. Enjoy and happy summer.
Crab Cakes ingredients:
1-2 sleeves of saltine crackers, crushed should make about 2 cups
1 pound jumbo lump crab meat, either fresh or canned
