We found some jumbo lump crab meat on sale at a local surf and turf store and bought a pound of it. When you're from Nebraska you always jump at the shot of finding good seafood on sale. These crab meat pieces were about the size of a quarter. I tried to keep them whole which made making the crab cakes challenging. Keeping them together as I formed the patties was a task BUT it was well worth it in the end. They were divine.
Squeeze with fresh lemon and top w/ my curry mango aioli. Also found her on JAP.

Recipe and pictures are my own.
