Crab cakes are always a reader favorite and it’s fun to compare recipes from different restaurants and chefs. Stoney River Steakhouse and Grill in Duluth offers these crab cakes as an appetizer, but we think they’re substantial enough to serve as an entree.

Chef Alaska Dzameshie of Stoney River suggests accompanying the crab cakes with a sweet, savory sauce like the mango salsa they serve at the restaurant. From our photograph, you can see the restaurant packs the crab mixture into a mold before baking, which makes for a beautiful presentation. You can duplicate that look with your own molds or a large biscuit cutter, or serve the cakes with a more rustic, hand-built look.
