This is a recipe that I begged from an old friend after having them for dinner at her house many years ago. The only difference is that the original recipe called for butter for the frying. I don't care for butter, so use Olive oil instead. This is the only recipe that I've seen for Crab Cakes that are made without bread crumbs.

You can adjust the seasoning to your preferences.
