Do the overpriced, over-breaded crab cakes at your local seafood restaurant leave you feeling a little crabby? Made with better-for-you ingredients, and full of fresh flavor from the lemon and herbs, these bite-sized balls are bursting with sweet crab taste and texture in every mouthful. The best part is how easy they are to whip up! Mixed in your food processor, they take just minutes to blend and prep for cooking. Though this recipe makes more than enough to share, we don’t think it’d be shellfish to make it for yourself – just freeze the uncooked leftovers and heat them when you’re hungry!
