I love crabcakes. These are a low carb version but the only difference is no breadcrumbs. If you want feel free to add about 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs to the mix.
I served these with a smoked tomato remoulade. My husband smoked the tomato's on his smoker and I just blended them with some mayonnaise. I have made them before with this mustard sauce and that is very good also.
