What do crab cakes taste like?

Chef's answer
Crab tastes like a soft, salty and squishy white meat that is not quite the same as chicken, or steak. It definitely tastes like fish, but without the "fishy" after taste or smell. Most people season it with butter, salt, or Old Bay which can greatly alter the taste in a pleasurable manner..
Frequently asked Questions 🎓
If your raw salmon has a strong smell, it's probably gone bad. The fishy smell will be pretty obvious, and bad salmon smells rather ammonia-like if it's not a good idea to cook it. Fresh salmon won't have such a strong smell and instead has more of a mild scent, so this is a good first sign of spoilage.
Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tschawytscha), also known as King salmon, is considered by many to be the best-tasting of the salmon bunch. They have a high-fat content and corresponding rich flesh that ranges from white to a deep red color.
Look for lobster tails ranging from 5oz to 12oz. These are smaller tails, and are the prime size for getting a good amount of meat and a quality taste and texture with lobster tails.
Wellshire All Natural Uncured Turkey Bacon ($6.99 per 12-ounce package), which is made with large chunks of turkey thighs and is reminiscent of Canadian bacon, took the top spot in large part because it had bold flavor and no off-notes.
Coho (Silver) Coho salmon doesn't get the recognition that fatty King and bold Sockeye does, but it has a lot going for it. Its medium fat content gives it a mild, subtle flavor that is less in-your-face.
Halibut tastes slightly sweet like other white fish. Halibut might have a slightly more robust flavor than cod or flounder, but its firmer texture makes it a great candidate for a first-time fish eater.
Arctic charArctic char looks like salmon, but it's less oily, so there's less fishy taste.
