Crab Cake Burgers

Crab Cake Burgers

WebMD Recipe from

These burgers have a true crab flavor that isn't masked by fillers or strong seasoning. Serve on a bun with tartar sauce or with a lemon-juice-dressed salad of greens, sprouts and sliced peaches. This recipe works best with convenient pasteurized crab meat, usually found in the refrigerated case near the fish counter. If you prefer lump crab meat, cut it into small, uniform pieces.
