Crab cake question

iheartcooking | Nov 4, 2013 09:06 PM

I'm cooking my way through a cookbook my kids bought me, cause they keep bugging me to... But I think it will be fun.

anyway there's a crab cake recipe that instructs me to heat the oil in a skillet to "hot but not smoking". Any advice on how I know I've reached this ideal temp? Should I use my thermometer? The instructions seem kind of vague.
Fortunately most of the directions in the book are not over my head, but I'm afraid this one is!
