Captain Gene’s suggestion: Place frozen crab cakes on a rack on a cookie sheet, then put a slice of butter on each crab cake. Bake in the oven at 375º for 22 minutes, then pull them out and squeeze a little lemon on them and slide them under the broiler to crisp up the top. Do not walk too far from the oven, otherwise you’ll burn the crab cakes. Enjoy!
