Crab Cakes Rockefeller

Why should oysters have all the fun? After all, crabs are bigger, meatier and more vicious (making our conquest over them all the more victorious!) And, I’ll unapologetically claim that this recipe is “healthy” since the crab cakes are baked, not fried, and spinach counts as a green vegetable.
