Crab cakes are loved by most people, and often considered a comfort food. Usually served as appetizers, they are also a part of breakfast buffets. For people who love crab, but find it a tad too expensive, crab cakes are the perfect compromise. With the addition of bread crumbs, milk, mayonnaise, eggs, pink radishes, yellow onions, and seasonings, the crab meat is infused with flavor and the cost of the food lowered.

There are a number of different methods of making these delicious cakes. While, the traditional boardwalk Maryland crab cakes are deep-fried and breaded, one can bake or grill them based on preference.

Dipping sauce for these cakes is also a very important aspect of this food. While tartar sauce is my favorite, here are a few popular options for you.
