Gratifying crab cakes with unique sauce

January 3, 2012

My parents used to say that when they went to my grandmother for parenting advice, she would tell them that children should be like pancakes — you ought to be able to throw the first one out and start over.

I couldn’t help remembering that anecdote during my last cooking endeavor and thinking that her analogy should also apply to crab cakes.
Using my cousin and former Starkville resident Nancy Prince’s recipe, I tried to make crab cakes at home the other day, since they’re one of my favorite items to order when I eat out, and her recipe looked delicious and simple. Nancy is, for my money, the best cook in our family, and I knew if she liked them, I probably would, too.

The assembly process went well, but the frying — not so much. Much like when I cook pancakes, the first one was a bit undercooked and mangled. The second I almost burned up, but I made the third one almost perfect.
