Tampa Style Deviled Crab Cakes with Chilau Sauce

This recipe is a spinoff from our cornbread deviled crab recipe but in the form of a meaty crab cake. Use as much blue crab meat as you like! With the addition of Chilau Sauce, it's like a crab cake that already has the hot sauce cooked into the center with that authentic gulf coast flavor!
