Crab Cakes with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Crab Cakes have been on my 'to make' list for a long time.
Living in WI, we don't have an overabundance of crab meat.
We wanted to make crab cakes, with as fresh as possible crab meat and
we wanted to make crab cakes as 'authentic' as possible.
We searched high and low and
in the end we decided to order crab meat online.
It was a little pricey but well worth it.
Sometimes you just need to splurge....
The crab we ordered from Linton's Seafood was clean, sweet, delicious and
perfect for making crab cakes.

Serve these delicious Crab Cakes with
a smoky, spicy, chipotle mayonnaise.
