One of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to eat less red meat – and well actually, meat in general. Don’t get me wrong – I love me a good steak or burger and won’t give that up all together. I’m just a little more strategic about when I eat my red meat and the quality of the meal when I do. Will I ever give it up all the way? I never say never but in the meantime, this decision has force me to try new recipes and make healthier choices at home and in restaurants.
Take these lovely crab cakes for example. I found this recipe through Pinterest and would have never tried it before. Besides it Lent…and my hubby loves them. He asked me to buy one of those cans of crab meat that you find in the seafood section of the grocery. I have to admit I was a little afraid of what was inside that can. Boy was I wrong! Inside that can was beautiful white crabmeat. It didn’t stink and it was so flakey!
One of the reasons that I write in this blog is not only to share recipes with you but to save them for me. One of my passions is finding new recipes and experimenting in the kitchen. I found this delightful blog – South Your Mouth that features southern recipes that I intend to try more of. But enough about that – let’s get onto these crab cakes!
These delightful little cakes are easy to make, flakey and healthy! We had ours with a wedge salad last night.
