Well for those of you that know me I am not a seafood lover whatsoever. When Blair and I were vacationing in Aruba a few weeks ago, I told myself if he ordered something that I never tried I would try it. Turns out Mahi Mahi and shrimp really aren’t that bad. One thing I can eat that is from the sea is crab, in the form of a delicious crispy cake. In you live in the Delaware Valley, you know that Bobby Chez is known for his crab cakes. They do hit the spot, but tend to be pretty expensive. Yesterday our family friends were having their annual crabfest that we were missing out on living in CT, so I suggested to Blair that we should make crab cakes. Of course he took me up on that offer and was there any time I needed an extra hand. They turned out well, even if they did tend to fall apart on me while I was cooking them. All in all I think it was a success.
