These crab cakes are quick and easy to make! Best of all they fit nicely into a clean eating healthy meal plan!

Growing up in Maryland I was raised on blue crabs! In the summertime that meant early morning trips to the whole sale fish market to buy bushels of crabs for neighborhood crab feasts.  Crab feasts were not complete without paper covered tables, wooden mallets and melted butter for dipping!  The butter added quite a few […]
