Thai Style Crab and Prawn Cakes
This is the other recipe I tagged for the game that I play on zaar. We had this as a starter before the the Thai green fish curry. It made for a fabulous meal and one that I have saved into my favourites to be enjoyed again and again. I use slightly more curry paste than listed but I had more crab meat and prawns than listed, I also used large green prawns chopped very small as this is what I had on hand. As well as adding the breadcrumbs to the mix I also patted some panko flakes onto the outside of the cakes to give them a nice crispy coating on the outside.

Cranberry Crab Cakes
This is a very different yet wonderful crab cake recipe. I tagged this one because of the ingredients not being the usual things you would see paired with crab meat. It was really good and the combination of the tart cranberries with the crab was a wonderful combination. I served ours over salad greens with a fruit salsa and homemade cranberry remoulade. These make for a delicious meal or if you make little crab cakes, great finger food for a party. You can use fresh or frozen cranberries in this recipe, if using frozen there is no need to thaw them.
