    If you check the carbs on a jar of regular mayo you will see there is less than the light mayo. - 2/20/09

    Very easy and were so good. I actually used Jumbo Lump crab meat instead and they were very good. Finally a crab cake without all the forbidden carbs! Thanks - 10/23/08

    Next time will try different seasoning and perhaps pan cooking since didn't brown well. Used egg sub since wasn't making a whole recipe and cut back on mayo but added some mustard. Held together pretty well and since only for me it isn't an issue. - 5/25/11

    I threw in a bit of Old Bay seasoning instead of the cajun to give it that real Maryland crab cake flavor. I couldn't believe how good they came out. - 3/16/11

    I tried this variation using gluten flour as a binder and chia seeds for crunch. It turned out crunchy and tasty. This is a low carb solution to a great tasting dish. - 3/11/11

    I must have done something wrong. Will try again but the batter came out really runny and when baked they were super thin. Taste was good, will cut back on the mayo next time. - 7/3/09

  • Look up Hungry Girl web site recipe for Crab cakes. It sounded strange when I saw it but they taste awesome and a large sized cake. Bake them longer then mentioned on the recipe but they taste really good only 113 cals a large cake and about 18gram of pro. - 4/16/10
