Easy Crab Cakes

Lump crab cakes! I absolutely love crab : ) Lump crab, a touch of seasoning & pan fried. Plate of deliciousness!

Everyone has their version of the best crab cake. Crab should always be the star! Seasoning is great but I keep it simple. The best crab cake I ever ate… was in Maryland! It was truly the best — wish I lived there “the best”. Where is the best crab cake you ever had?

I made a side salad with mixed lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers & balsamic vinaigrette. Plus mango avocado salsa. Happy Sunday & stay safe πŸ™‚πŸ’›πŸŒŸ #sundaycooking #crabtastic
