Crab Cakes


These crab cakes are almost pure crab meat...hardly any filler.



  1. Mix all ingredients by hand. Do not over blend and try not to break apart the crab meat too much. Mixture will be very wet and barely holding together. Mixture will make 4 large cakes or 6 smaller ones.
  2. Place a 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs in a plate. Grab a handful of crab mixture and gently pat together. Gently lay the cake onto the bread crumbs and flip onto the other side to coat. Put cakes into the refrigerator for about an hour to firm up.
  3. Coat a frying pan with oil. Sauté the crab cakes for 4 to 5 minutes on one side. Flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes till browned.
  4. Enjoy as a sandwich (place on a toasted poppy seed bun or potato roll) with lettuce and tartar sauce and coleslaw on the side. They're great all by themselves too.
