"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
The "Big Deal" alludes to Mike's (Gloria's dad) response to an exaggerate attitude. So these "Big Deal" crab cakes are not diluted with bread crumbs to extend the serving amount. They are the "Real Deal".The recipe can be served as is or with a dipping sauce of your choosing. A mayo curry mix would go well and provide a bit of additional spice but there are many other choices to consider. Enjoy this delectable, mouth watering, lip smacking crab dish. No exaggeration intended.
