Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Crab Cakes


It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is CRAB CAKES!

If you love seafood, crab cakes are always a winner. It rates right up there with clam chowder, and I get both whenever I can. 🙂 When you can make your own crab cakes at home, win win! This is a savory and easy recipe you’re going to love.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
