I found some jumbo lump crab meat on sale at a local surf and turf grocery, so naturally I went and bought 2 pounds of it. Where I’m from, you always jump at the chance of finding good seafood on sale. The crab meat pieces were about the size of a quarter. I tried to keep them whole which made making the crab cakes challenging. Keeping them together as I formed the patties was a task but it was well worth it in the end. They were heavenly.
