    The crab cakes were delicious and turned out great, not too spicy and not too bland. I wasn't a fan of the sauce with the crab cakes and neither was the rest of my family. It was a good sauce, we just didn't feel like it went well with crab. I will definitely use this recipe again.

    Absolutely delicious. Good flavor; the jalapeño kicked it up a notch and the sauce is a perfect complement. I’ve never made crab cakes before, but these were SO easy to make. This one is going into my regular rotation!
