These crab cakes are full of flavor and can be served as a snack, appetizer or even a main dish. Did I mention that they are really easy to make? This recipe will make about 8 to10 crab cakes.

While Bobby cooked the crab cakes, I whipped up a quick dipping sauce. Following is what I used:

3/4 cup Mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh chopped chives
2 teaspoons fresh lemon
3 teaspoons chipotle chili powder
3 teaspoons Dijon Mustard

Mix all of these together in a small mixing bowl until combined and you have a nice creamy dipping sauce. 

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy
