Crab Cake Scampi Recipe {Lenten option}

Fresh lump crab meat crab cakes served over a white whine and garlic butter sauce. This crab cake scampi recipe is perfect for a meatless dinner during Lent. #SamsClubSeafood #ad

Brian and I enjoy fresh fish and seafood all year long, but most especially during the season of Lent, when we’re trying to reduce our intake of meat.

Shrimp, crab, and scallops are our favorites. Since Brian loves my shrimp scampi recipe I really wanted to try making a crab cake scampi recipe this year. Seasoned fresh lump crab meat, formed into patties, breaded and pan fried, then drizzled with a white wine and garlic butter sauce over pasta. That’s a yummi meatless dinner for sure!

Truth be told, my husband Brian and I aren’t much into retail therapy. I can guarantee that you’ll never see us leisurely roaming the mall on a Saturday.
However, I love getting great deals, and I’ve been known to enjoy a casual browse through a clearance section now and then. Like many cooks, I also love to go grocery shopping. If you had asked me a month ago, I’d say that Brian typically doesn’t like to be in any type of store at all, though.

That’s why he was less than excited when I first told him that we’d be spending part of our date night at Walmart last week. Actually, he was downright grumpy about it, and in no mood to go anywhere with me. I believe his words were, “Boo, isn’t date night supposed to be fun?! Explain to me how exciting and fun Walmart is.” Click here to find out what I did and what you can do to get a guy to love shopping!
