Reviewed Spicy Crab Cakes with Lemon Aioli Sauce

Jan 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love all the recipes I've tried, but wasn't too crazy about this one. The garlic taste was strong for me and I didn't quite like the mayo taste with crab meat. The declawing of the fresh crab meat was a lot of work and I personally prefer the taste of plain crab legs with melted butter and lemon. This was my first time really tasting crab cakes...

However, I retained some of the pork as not to eliminate its flavor by using a (half of ONE) Kiolbasa...

A healthier way to make this dish: I love shrimp and wanted more than a dollop on my steak, but did not want all the butter. So instead of folding the two sticks of butter into the shrimp, I heated a teaspoon or more of heavy whipping cream in the same pot that my garlic, shallots and shrimp had been cooked in and mixed in a little flour to thicken...

I tweaked the recipe by using a can of baked beans and my husband's very good bbq sauce. The bell peppers, peppers, garlic, onion, and other ingredients really enhanced my normally basic baked beans. The beans were flavorful and delicious. I have not tried using the dry beans.
