We love Crab Cakes but because of the price of crab, I rarely make them. We could only find crab that was small pieces of white meat so if you can find lump crab pieces, use them instead. However, the small pieces didn’t affect the taste at all, they were still delicious!
I only made a half batch since there is just the two of us. Half of the batch made four Crab Cakes. These Crab Cakes are very easy to make and delicious. I made them, put them in the refrigerator overnight and cooked them for our lunch the next day.
In a medium bowl, whisk the egg.
Add the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard,
Worcestershire sauce, Old Bay, salt, celery and parsley.
Mix well with a spoon.
Add the crab meat and bread crumbs mixing well with a spoon.
Cover a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
Form the crab mixture into four patties. It is about 1/3 cup each.
Cover with waxed paper and place in the refrigerator for a few hours to overnight.
In a large frying pan heat about 1/2” of oil over medium heat until hot.
Fry the crab cakes on both sides until golden brown.
Serve immediately with your favorite sauce.
