Add zest to your menu with Phillips Baja Crab Cakes! This flavor cake is handmade with wild-caught crab meat accented by chili pepper and garlic for fresh, Baja-inspired flavor. We add hot sauce and cayenne pepper for a hit of extra heat. These cakes cook quickly from thawed or frozen and are perfect for a wide variety of menu applications.
