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 available. Often times you can only find crab legs, crab meat or lobster in grocery stores around the holidays. That being said, 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.
