Crab Cakes with Remoulade Sauce

Crab cakes are a classic dish that can be served as an appetizer or a main course. They are perfect for a special occasion or a family dinner. The remoulade sauce adds a tangy and flavorful kick, making this dish even more delicious.

Growing up in Maryland, I have always loved seafood, especially crab. My family would often have crab feasts during the summer, and I would always look forward to it. Crab cakes were a staple dish at these feasts, and I loved the way my aunt would make them. I have adapted her recipe and added my own twist to it. Now, whenever I make crab cakes, it reminds me of those summer days spent with family.
