“As served at Charleston's 82 Queen Restaurant. this recipe comes from the printed version as posted in The Taste of Charleston Restaurant recipes published in 2004. although the website for 82 queen now has a different version which adds more may and bread crumbs. but did not increase the amounts of crab meat thus yielding more crab cakes without as much crab meat in them. use which version suits your tastes. I prefer their originally shared recipe with more crab than filler.”
