Crab Cakes


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a really good crab cake recipe. I had a bushel of crabs yesterday and today I am picking through whats left for meat. I love crab cakes but am not a fan of fried. So anyone with a good baked or broiled crab cake recipe feel free to share. I'm all ears. Thanks.

1 pound lump crabmeat

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 tablespoons spicy mustard

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

1 teaspoon minced red jalapeno pepper

1 teaspoon minced green jalapeno pepper

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

1 tablespoon chopped chives

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 medium lemon, juiced

1/2 medium orange, juiced

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salad, for serving, recipe follows

Avocado Mousse, recipe follows

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Pick through crabmeat to make sure it has no shells. Stir in mayonnaise and mustard. Add 1/4 cup of the bread crumbs, red and green jalapenos, thyme, chives, salt, and pepper and mix in thoroughly. Add the lemon juice and orange juice and stir to combine.

Line a (1/2-cup) measuring cup with plastic wrap and pack cup with crab mixture. Pull plastic wrap so that molded crab mixture can be easily removed and place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Repeat until all of the mixture has been molded into cakes. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of bread crumbs on a plate and mix with olive oil. Sprinkle a little of this mixture on top of each crab cake. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

I would probably try a little more mayo (for binding) and back the baking time down to 5-6 minutes. You can try a small one to help you figure out the time.

Here is another one that calls for broiling the crab cakes. Sounds yummy.

1 egg yolk

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon dry mustard

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1 pound Maryland jumbo lump crab meat

Preheat the broiler.

In a large bowl, combine the egg yolk, salt, pepper, mustard, Worcestershire, mayonnaise, and parsley. Then, gently fold in crabmeat (be careful not to break up the lumps). Shape into cakes and broil for 5 minutes.

Here you go:

1lb crab meat

1 egg beaten

1 tablespoon parsley flakes

1 teaspoon of Old Bay (We normally add 1 1/2 teaspoons)

2 slices of white bread crust removed

moisten bread with water or milk (milk is better) then remove moisture, crumble it up, mix all together then fry till golden brown. Makes about 4 large crab cakes

per pound of crabmeat...

1 egg

1 tablespoon of worchestershire sauce

1 tablespoon of vinegar

1 tablespoon of mustard

1 tablespoon of mayo

1 slice of bread finely crumbled

1/2 cup of diced onion

pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon of black pepper

1 teaspoon of Old Bay Seasoning

I'm guessing at amounts, because I don't use any set

amount when making crab cakes. Work totally on feel.

I use two different ones. There is one on the side of an Old Bay can which is almost exact to Huly's dads. The other comes from wynne river company which you just add mayo, and a bottle of their seasoning.

That Old Bay recipe is more than sufficient...Love it.

That is the recipe I use and I think it is great.

Best crap I ever had was the "Crab Bomb" in a restaurant I think called Jerry's in Laurel MD. It is the only shelled crab dish that ever tasted just like if you cooked a bushel and cracked them yourself.

Maryland Crab Cakes


1 pound Maryland Crab meat

1 cup seasoned bread crumbs

1 large egg

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon dry mustard

Margarine, butter, or oil for frying

Remove all cartilage from crabmeat

In a bowl, mix bread crumbs, eggs, mayonnaise and seasonings.

Add crab meat and mix gently by thoroughly. If mixture is too dry, add a little more mayonnaise. Shape into 6 cakes.

Cook cakes in a frying pan in just enough fat to prevent sticking until they are browned (about 5 minutes on each side).

*Note: If desired, crab cakes may be deep fried at 350 degrees for 2 to 3 minutes or until browned.
