Crab Cakes

December 20, 2010

I love crab cakes for an appetizer but you can serve them as a main course as well.  Make your own at home and you will enjoy the real flavor of crab meat, not like the ones you order at restaurants that always seem to have 90% bread in them.

 

Crab Cakes

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Crabmeat (fresh or canned)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 t. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/t. Dry Mustard
  • 2 T. Mayonnaise
  • 1 t. Lemon Juice
  • 1 T. Dijon Mustard
  • 1 T. Melted Butter
  • 1 t. Fresh Parsley  (chopped)
  • 1 t. Phillips Seafood Seasoning
  • 1/2 C. Bread Crumbs
  • Fresh Parsley (for Garnish)

Preparation

  1. Mix all the ingredients together except the crab and combine thoroughly
  2. Fold in the crab
  3. Shape into cakes and pan fry a few moments on each side (until turning crispy brown)
  4. Serve with a sauce of your choice *
