Fake Crab Crabby Cakes

“I love these crab cakes, and I have always used the fake crab in them. Fake crab is actually made from real fish, only it has been shaped and seasoned to resemble crabmeat. I originally saw these prepared on an episode of Calling All Cooks on Food Network, however when I tried the recipe from their site, there were many errors. This is the version I came up with after watching the episode several times and my own personal tests in my kitchen. The amount of oil I used to brown the cakes before baking was minimal - like 1 teaspoonful. These were delicious!”
