It’s not quite as golden brown as most crab cakes, but it’s cause ours isn’t fried, but baked. I think I’m going to make this again as an appetizer for our Christmas dinner.

Ben and I are trying to figure out our Christmas menu; we’re thinking of going with a fish dish. What’s on your Christmas dinner menu? Do you have some traditions or do you do something different each year?
