I'm getting these recipes from some free mag I got at the pharmacy for diabetics (I am not diabetic.) I modified when necessary for SBD.

8 crabcakes

1 pound crabmeat
1 egg
1 cup finely chopped celery
1 tablespoon mayo
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/8 teaspoon mustard powder
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons of dry whole wheat bread crumbs
3 drops hot pepper sauce (you could try jalapeno for a twist. Jalapeno crabcakes!)

In a large bowl, combine the crabmeat, egg, celery, mayo, lemon juice, white pepper, curry powder, red pepper, mustard powder, chives, bread crumbs and hot pepper sauce. Toss to mix. Form into 8 patties.

Heat the patties in a medium nonstick skillet over low heat until brown, 4 to 5 mins on each side.

These sound weird, but are so good and taste excellent! Came from the yahoo ricecooker group by Shannon.

Zucchini Mock Crabcakes

2 c coarsely grated zucchini (liquid drained)
1 c seasoned bread crumbs (panko are better)
2 T grated onion
2 T mayonnaise
2 T cream cheese (opt, I add)
2 eggs
2 t old bay seasoning
1 T chopped parsley
1 T garlic (minced dried or fresh chopped)

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, mix and shape into cakes.
Fry in Crisco (or oil) browning on each side..

And once you put it in the "batter" use it immediately so it does not get soggy.
I make up the batter then throw in zucchini and then the panko bread crumbs last and make them all right away.
If I want to make extra, I make them and put them in a glass container on top of deli wrap paper (I get the sheets from sams).
