lots of good quality lump crab and very few filler. Season how you prefer. Ive always like my crab cakes to be have a nice golden sear on them from a slight amount of butter in the pan. Just enough filler to barely hold them together.

A good trick is to use some mayonase (home made garlic mayo is a good choice) to stick everythick togther and if the mixture is too wet use just a bit of japanish bread crumbs.
You can also add finly diced shalots for texture.
For seasoning just a bit of S&P and choped chives\garlic chives.
Deep fry or pan fry with an olive oil-butter mixture just lightly so the mixture is still a bit moist.

I dont make it often because crabs (usually you can find small blue ones at the markets) are very expenssive at 15$\lb. bawling.gif

If I were into tatoos... I would tatoo some grapes on my forarm. :P

The best crab cakes I ever had were at Anthony's in Olympia, WA - made from Dungeoness crab. They were made in a manner similar to what ShortFuse suggested.
