These were amazing! I made them for a dinner party and they were a huge hit. I used fake crab meat because I'm allergic to shellfish. Also, I didn't have any chilli sauce so I substituted a jalepeno, and it was perfect. I also added a tomato to the salsa. I'm making these again tonight to impress my mother at another dinner party, and they will definately be a staple in my recipe box. Thanks for the great recipe!!!

This was a wonderful recipe. Following my tradition, I stuck closely to the directions and ingredients so that I could give it a fair review after. I used canned crabmeat because it was a lot cheaper, and I also used light mayo to cut down on the calories. For anyone else, I would suggest making the salsa with more mango and less onion. The onion amount was a little overpowering, and we stunk afterwards! I think you can also cut down a lot on the mayo amount--just throw two heaping teaspoons in there, and it will be fine. This is one of the few recipes that takes just a little work, and somehow ends up tasting spectacular. I would even call this recipe "company worthy." One tip--my bowl of crab mixture did NOT make 16 regular crabcakes--it only made 7 small cakes that had medium to low size thickness. The length of the cakes was about the length of the bottom of a water bottle.) It was enough for me and my husband, but if you're cooking for a family, I would suggest doubling the recipe. This is a great recipe to make when you don't have too much time to cook. You can also adjust some things to make it more healthy--ie: light mayo, wheat breadcrumbs, etc. This was a fulfilling meal that did not make us feel lethargic--we were able to go the gym soon after eating. Thanks for posting this!

This is without a doubt, one of the best recipes I have reviewed on this site. I made the crabcakes exactly as written, they formed beautifully and kept their shape nicely while sauteing. Good ratio of crab to cake, the crab was not overpowered by the other ingredients. This salsa is excellent, I used jarred mango from the produce isle, which made it a snap to put together. I drizzled a little EVOO in to keep everything together. Served over Marrikesh Express mango salsa couscous. Sincere thanks for a great recipe, well done! Update 4/9/09 Grilled these on the BBQ last night, that smokey, grilled taste makes them even better. Held together prefectly. Just terrific!

This was fabulous! The salsa is a tastes wonderful. And grilling them is definitely the way to go. I doubled the recipe for the cakes and got seven meal sized cakes...about hamburger patty size. So I think the yield is wrong, but otherwise...don't change a thing!

It was good. We thought there was way too much onion(I got one of the smaller ones in the store).

These were fantastic. By far the best crab cakes I've ever had. I don't even like mangoes and I LOVED the combination of crab cake and mango salsa. We'll definitely make this recipe again. Thanks!

We altered the recipe to make it less hot for more sensitive palates -- we just didn't put in any hot sauce or jalepenos. It still turned out FABULOUS! Best crab cakes my husband has ever had....and I'll be making them again when my in-laws visit.

Great crab cakes. I put the salsa in a food processer and made more of a sauce, it was great. Thank you
