Healthy Crab Cakes for My Mom

How do you make a decent crab cake for an elderly person on a restricted diet? By accident, I realized I had made quite a few changes when I prepared Maryland Crab Cakes #235084, so I decided to list them here as a separate recipe. I have made many crab cake recipes over the years, but this was a very tasty, but not too rich crab cake; because it was baked rather than fried. It has a whitish appearance rather than golden brown, because I forgot to add a lightly beaten egg. Omitting the egg and additional salt, and baking instead of frying prevented my Mom from being overwhelmed, however these crab cakes may not hold their shape as well sans the egg, which appears to bug my younger brother, but delights Baltimorons who like to brag about too much crab meat in their crab cakes. These crab cakes tasted clean and fresh, letting the crab meat take center stage
