Crab Cakes Recipe by Jette Virdi

Crabs are in season right now, so it is a great time to make a trip to your local fishmonger. This crab cakes recipe is a great way to make use of those fresh crabs, and it couldn’t be any simpler. The freshly picked crab claw meat is combined with fluffy mashed potato, and flavoured with fresh herbs and the zest and juice of one lemon.
