Something marvelous that happens to seafood when it's coated in breadcrumbs and fried.  The crunchy exterior paired with the soft sweet flesh makes magic in your mouth.  The flavors are usually simple but the dish is irresistible nonetheless.  If you cook nothing else this summer but these three dishes, you'll be perfectly happy.

Cajun Crab Cakes
