Crab Cakes with Imperial Sauce

Published April 1, 2007.

Why this recipe works:

When it comes to crab cake recipes, we think the simpler, the better. While some crab cake recipes use bread crumbs to bind the cakes together, we found that saltines worked better. They add more flavor than bread crumbs and don’t turn soggy or pasty the way bread crumbs can.

Serves 4

If you can find it, buy fresh lump crabmeat for the crab cakes—it's more expensive but worth every penny. You'll need 1 sleeve of saltines here; crush them until most have turned to dust, leaving a few pieces no bigger than a pebble.
