There's only one letter separating crab cakes from crap cakes. Crab cakes -- meaty, crispy, light -- stand as one of summer's most delicious meals. Crap cakes -- bready, soggy, dense -- taste like, well, crap.
Readily available and affordable, at the peak of the season Dungeness crab can cost a quarter of what lobster does. So there are no excuses why you can't get out there and pick up some fresh local crab.
