Combine all ingredients except the crackers. Add crackers crumbs in as close to sauteing as possible so that they crab cakes don't get too moist from the other ingredients. Form into patties the size of hamburger patties.
Saute in frying pan over medium-to-high heat in butter, 10 minutes per side. Make sure that it's crispy outside but moist and juicy inside.
A simple tartar sauce to accompany the crab cakes can be made by mixing mayonnaise, grated onion and lemon juice.
My daughter makes these and they are soooo good!!They don't look like the pictures but they are great!

I love this recipe. I have been using it for about ten years now, so long that I almost call it my own. :)
I hesitate before rating how expensive...that depends on if you buy the crab at retail or catch it in your neighborhood. I'm very lucky and live at the beach. hope you enjoy as much as I have/am. I like to serve it with a garlic aioli, or if its a special occasion, hollandaise. any way you want, they are sooo good!!

I just made these crab cakes and they are fabulous!! Crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside! We love Bookbinder's crab cakes and these are just as good!! Very easy to make as well!

I made this recipe once and now it is a request for my daughter's birthday. She thinks these are the best crab cakes.
