Jalapeno Crab Cakes

This is one of Jalapeno Miss's favorite recipes. We prepared the recipe below using a 16 ounce can of all claw meat, but you can use white meat. It would probably be good with imitation crab meat, but we enjoy pure crab meat over the imitation stuff. The Parmesan cheese is a must for this version. So delicious!
