Cajun Crawfish/Crab Cakes With Spicy Red Pepper Sauce

“This is an adaption of a South Beach recipe. The features that make it a healthier and lower carb recipe are still in place, but I've added a Cajun twist to it. The result is a delicious crawfish patty with a tasty, spicy red pepper sauce. The original recipe calls for crab and it is just as tasty.”
