Crab Cakes w/ Lemon-Dill Sauce

I was inspired by some friends, that are on a mission with their low carb diet, to
help them out and create a new yummy recipe for them.

This is a simple low carb crab cake recipe, and the dill sauce is low carb, calorie, and fat. It makes a great vegetable dip too. If you are doing a low carb diet use whole sour cream.

Make the sauce first and chill in the refrigerator so it can thicken while you are making the crab cakes.

I use cans of chunk crab meat, but you can use fresh pieces if you have them available, even better. If you want to spice it up use a diced Jalapeno instead of bell pepper.

Make these into small Tbsp size patties and they make great appetizers!!

I would love to hear from you any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated. Enjoy!
