Crab Cakes

If you like crab cakes, try this recipe.

Pick over 1 pound of crab meat and remove any shell.

Add 1/2 cup of panko or crushed crackers and 4 T. diced parsley.

Add 1/4 C. of mayonnaise, 2 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning, 1 egg and 1/4 C. thinly sliced green ends from green onions. Add some cracked black pepper and 1/2 tsp. of salt. Mix this thoroughly.

Form into fat round cakes. You can do this by hand but I like using my cooking rings for this purpose.

I bought these on Curtis Stone's website. They come with this tamper to tap down the mixture into a compact patty.

Nice! Refrigerate these for 1 hour.

Brown them in 3 T. of butter mixed with 3 T. oil over medium heat.

Drain on paper towels.

I like to serve them over a simple salad with a vinaigrette dressing. I drizzle them with a cucumber dill sauce and sprinkle them with capers. Squeeze a wedge of lemon over them just before eating.

Hi there,

First of all, thanks so much for leaving comments on my blog. That certainly makes blogging extra special! :)

I should now better than to come to your blog shortly before dinner time. Now I am hungry for crab cakes!!! ;)

Are you interested in winning a white cotton T-shirt with a pink heart and the words I ♥ Oktoberfest in size L? Then come over to my blog until Sunday, 22nd January, and leave a comment here . It's way cool that you have been to Munich. Next time you come over here, you definitely have to let me know.

What about having a look at my Advent and Christmas and getting an impression of Munich's Christmas market ? Moreover, you can see some frosty weather photos and pictures from a walk around my neighborhood on January 1st. Finally, there are photos of New Year's Eve . Of course, comments are welcome -- it's always great to hear what you think!

Have a wonderful 2012,
your blog friend from Munich, Germany,

All I can say is I wish I lived next door to you. I'd love to be one of your tasting testers!
I could eat every one of those. Don't bother with the salad, but I do love the sauce. I love having leftover crab cakes to eat for breakfast.

Crabcakes, YUMMY! To long since >i had that here. But we had it quite often when I grew up by the ocean. Time to make some I think :-)

Have a great day!
I come from the East Coast, near the Bay. We have a Crab Cake Recipe that has been handed down through the generations. I will tell you, yours looks pretty good, though. I'm crazy about the capers on top. YUM.

I think your blog just might make a serious cook out of me yet! You hit a home run with this recipe. You've been out here often enough to know all about dungeness crab. When in season, I can get it fairly cheap. We have friends with crab traps , so when I'm really lucky , I get it free. I love it cooked in any way!!! Thanks for this recipe.
I'm not a big seafood eater but I do enjoy a nice crab cake from time to time. These look delicious!

If they were putting me to death and I got a last meal--it'd be crab cakes. Living in the desert, I dream about them all the time because I ate them growing up on the Chesapeake. When I travel anywhere near an ocean--I try to order them for breakfast/lunch/dinner. This recipe looks outstanding!

The hardest part is the picking over. I used to hate that!

I love crab!
