This is a pretty simple recipe:
What you will need:
1lb lump crab meat
1tsp of Worcestershire Sauce (or the substitute)
2 slices of bread (i'm actually going to try it with whole wheat vs. white bread)
1 egg beaten
1 tablespoon of Mayonnaise
2 teaspoons of seafood seasoning
Crushed crackers for the cake or panko flakes.
1 table spoon of parsley (fresh if you have it)
Frying pan or baking sheet
Let's get cooking:
After picking through your crab meet, eliminating all of the shells and any other particles, put to the side.
In a mixing bowl, add in your beaten egg, seasonings, mayo, break bread into little pieces removing the crusts.
Add in your crab meat to the bowl and mix. Form the mixture into thick patty's, like hamburgers. Then dip into your crackers or your panko flakes.
If you opt to fry these, use olive or canola oil. You'll get a really nice brown coat, like you are frying chicken cutlets, they are ready to turn once they turn brown. Flip and when the other side is brown they are done.
If you opt to bake them, like i will, you can still create a brown top. Spray Olive Oil Pam on either side, remembering to flip them. Cook about 25 minutes at a temperature of 375 degrees. You can even broil them for 5 minutes either side to ensure a toasted top!
You will have at least 6 crab cakes from this recipe.
