Dear SOS: Last February I ate dinner at the Oceanaire Seafood Room in Washington, D.C. Can you get the recipe for the crab cakes? There is nothing like them. The cake is more like a scoop of chicken salad than a formed cake.
Dear Ellen: Oceanaire Seafood Room was happy to share its recipe for these tender, soft crab cakes. The cakes are baked, not fried, and can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, then baked before serving. Perfect for company!
