The Nerd Chef: Crab Cakes
Crab cake report:
they were delicious! Definitely a good recipe and I think very successful, especially with Dr Germ's discovery of a lovely creamy avocado dipping sauce! There were only two problems with the recipe as written. First it doesn't yield as many crab cakes as I thought it would, especially considering how delicious they are. Second, your recipe tried to kill me. Seriously. The oil starts to burst and pop and send geysers of superheated oil in. Every. Direction. I narrowly escaped being blinded and by the time our guests showed up I had to have a towel wrapped around my neck to hide the massive burn mark where the oil went for the jugular. Sweet Lord! I survived though and let me tell you those were the best crab cakes I ever ate, at least partially because I nearly paid for them with my life.
