Ingredients

  • 1  Pound  jumbo lump crabmeat
  • slices white bread, crusts removed and cubed
  • 2/3  Cups  mayonnaise
  • 1  Teaspoon  Dijon mustard
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  Old Bay seasoning
  • dashes of Tabasco sauce
  • 1  Teaspoon  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  fresh lemon juice
  • egg, beaten
  • 3  Tablespoons  butter, for frying

Directions

Carefully check the crabmeat for any cartilage or shell. Put the meat in a bowl and set it aside.

Mix the bread with all of the remaining ingredients except for the butter. Gently fold in the crab, careful not to break up the crab into shreds. Shape into 10 crabcakes and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Heat about 2 tablespoons of  the butter in a non-stick frying pan. Sauté until golden brown on each side, about 3-5 minutes a side. 

Garnish with tartar sauce, remoulade, or simply with a squeeze of lemon.

Crab Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
