Crab cakes are exorbitantly charged in restaurants. One of the most expensive crab cakes I had was in LA - $16.99 for two tiny pieces that don't even feed my finger. I bought one mini crab cake from Whole Foods Market some time ago. Ok. What then can a mini crab cake do? True, it still does not feed my finger. But I can pair them with a dish that feeds more than my fingers.
I like the crab cakes from Whole Foods Market as there is substantial amount of crab meat and taste good (and fresh).
Back to accessorizing a main dish. Pasta herewith!
Crumble up the crab cake and toss the little bits of batter-crisps in a super light pasta of Aglio e Olio.
There you have, from all-vegetarian simplicity to seafood indulgence.
