Seaside cafes all along the Gulf of Siam make hearty, delicious crab cakes with pork, garlic, and pepper. Fresh crabmeat is spectacular in this dish, but canned also works fine. In the classic Thai presentation, the mixture is stuffed into crab shells, steamed, and then fried, filling-side down, until golden and crisp. This version is just as delicious, but much quicker to make. Serve with a simple spicy sauce, such as Sri Rachaa sauce, Sweet-Hot Garlic Sauce<
