Living in Alaska we have access to fresh seafood all the time. Friends will regularly drop by with half a crab or part of a fish. Last week we were given 4 king crab legs. They were already steamed so all we had to do was heat them up!
My husband is the best. He takes all the meat out of the crab legs for us and puts in a big bowl. If you have not had king crab before, let me tell you that the taste is rich and buttery. I can not eat a lot of it because it is so rich. So we had some leftovers. I packaged them up and put them in the fridge. Then I hit pinterest. I began looking for a simple recipe to make crab cakes with. I found several, but realized I don’t need a recipe and I had all the ingredients.
So for Sunday brunch I whipped these babies up!

You can also fry these up in some oil on the stove top. Just form them into small patties first. Don’t over do it on the garlic salt!
