Crab Cakes with Tropical Salsa

My husband had been begging me for crab cakes all week, so I finally decided to make them at the end of the week. We’ve tried crab cakes at so many restaurants, and have yet to have any that are any good, so we both rather I make them at home. However, I did see some really good pre-made ones at Whole Foods yesterday, but I have never had them.
