    crab cakes

    Anyone have a good crab cake recipe they would be willing to share?
    I have a beautiful container of lump crabmeat to cook for dinner.

    Thanks

    I posted this one on my blog a while back. It's based on my mother's crabcakes which were the best I ever tasted. If you make them, squeeze out some of the extra liquid as you make the patties, and using bacon fat would be a good choice for frying in place of butter. Never broil - real Maryland crabcakes are never broiled.

    Maryland Crab Cakes (5/8/10)


    • 1 lb Maryland blue crab meat (jumbo lump preferred, drained well)
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1 tsp dry mustard
    • 2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
    • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
    • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
    • 1 tsp lemon juice
    • melted butter
    Combine all ingredients except the butter. Shape into cakes. Melt several tbsp of butter in a large frying pan. Fry cakes on low to medium heat until well-browned on both sides. Remove the cakes to a plate and snack on the crunchy bits left in the pan!

    What is Old Bay seasoning - I need an equivalent for here in the UK. Is it like powdered bay leaves?

    Goodness! What a list! I shall have to make some and store it in a jar - it sounds enough for DOZENS of crab cakes.
