Crab Cakes

I woulda swore somebody on here was looking for a crab cake recipe. If so here are two which sorta compliment and contradict each other. If not go back to sleep

Though I live in Maine, I grew up (despite what the wife says) in Maryland and watched my mother, my mother-in-law, and the wife make a few thousand crab cakes. bbqlover's recipe looks good except a Marylander would try not to use any crumbs at all. I've always seen onions and bells (usually red) but nothing else except celery here and there. Old Bay is the most common seasoning around the Chesapeake. They can be broiled if you prefer to frying.

Get a pound of lump crab meat, one egg, a little panko bread crumbs, a little paprika. mix lightly, form, fry in half butter, half olive oil....you can add bell pepper, onion and other veggies if you want but I wouldn't....less is best...let them taste the crab...

Re: Crab Cakes

I always use this recipe for making Crab cake.

Ingredients

* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 6 green onions, chopped
* 3/8 cup olive oil
* 1 (16 ounce) can canned crabmeat, drained
* 1 egg
* 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
* 1 teaspoon dry mustard
* 8 ounces buttery round crackers, crushed
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
* 1 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning TM
* salt to taste
* ground black pepper to taste
* 1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs) or regular dry bread crumbs

Directions

1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a skillet over high heat. Saute green onions briefly until tender; cool slightly.
2. Combine crabmeat, sauteed green onions, egg, mayonnaise, dry mustard, crushed crackers, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, Old Bay seasoning, salt and pepper. Form into 1/2 inch thick patties. Coat the patties with bread crumbs.
3. Heat 1/2 cup oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Cook cakes until golden brown on each side. Drain briefly on paper towels and serve hot.

Re: Crab Cakes

Phillips outa Maryland is famous for their crabcakes...they use crumbled
Ritz crackers, which adds a nice buttery taste.

Their Crab Imperial may be the best crab dish I've ever eaten.
