Weekly Recipe: Light Crab Cakes

Since beginning my "eating healthy" resolution, the Spark Recipes app on my iPhone has been a HUGE help. Spark People is a calorie tracking, etc. Web site, and their app is a collection of user-created recipes that are often lowfat, low calorie, and delicious. We had bought some cheap-o imitation crab meat, and this recipe seemed like a perfect way to use it. The recipe is delicious, and only around 200 calories per crab cake. Enjoy!
