I'm from Buffalo, and Catholic, and it being Good Friday, I'm craving an old-fashioned Fish Fry with beer batter, coleslaw, and all the the trimmings. Does such a thing exist in Evanston or at least relatively close on the El?
Crab cakes are so often disappointing -- mushy or gummy, full of starchy filler. But these easy cakes are full of beautiful lump crabmeat, and a light panko coating ensures they fry up crispy and golden brown. Bright, lemony aioli makes a piquant counterpart to the sweet, sweet crab.
