The Old Guard House Inn
Chef Breuers feels that an essential ingredient to crab cakes
is not overpowering
the flavor of the crab. Thus, he uses ingredients that complement
the meat, while
omitting those that would dominate the dish, like red or green
peppers. Chef Breuers
also leaves out breadcrumbs, or any kind of filler, allowing for
a lighter crab cake.
