Crab cakes

Mine is very simple:  Crab, panko, mayo and Old Bay Seasoning.  Can be baked or fried.


You probably use different crab, however.

Just source good crab, some minced scallion and tiny amount of celery,


Just as lettuce does not belong on a lobster roll, celery has no place in a crab cake.

Here they are.  We only had 8 oz or 213 grams of crab left after we pigged out on the freshly cooked ones.  
This what I did.

213 g crab

2 chopped scallions…they were small

1/2 beaten egg…30 g

2 tablespoons mayo

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 

1 tablespoon fine toasted bread crumbs

1 teaspoon Old Bay

1 teaspoon lemon juice

salt and pepper.


They were 81 grams each…four of them.  Just enough bread crumbs to bind them.  I put some panko crumbs on the outside before frying them gently in butter.


Served with a dip of mayo, sour cream, chipotle, cilantro and lime juice.  Rested in the fridge before frying.


Thank you all…this combo is a keeper for us.






These look great!  I'm glad you found a combination you like!  Bravo!
