Oh yes, these tasted as delicious as they look! I have been on a seafood binge lately and these Crab Cakes really hit the spot. There is not a lot of filler in these Crab Cakes which makes them taste even better! This recipe will make 6 large 3/4” thick Crab Cakes or 36 bite sized Crab Cakes.

Divide the crab mixture into 6 equal

36 bite sized crab cakes).

Place them on waxed paper.

Handle gently or these will fall apart easily.

In a large heavy bottom frying pan,

add enough oil to fry the crab

cakes (I used about 1/2” of oil).

Heat the oil over medium heat.

Carefully add the crab cakes.

Cook until golden brown, turn over

to cook the other side. Place crab cakes

on a paper towel to remove the oil,

carefully patting both sides then serve.

  1. All right, I’m your 100th LIKE for this post, Diane! Haha!

    I had always wondered how to make ’em crab cakes. Never knew one could put mayo in it too. Hmm, I’ll make sure to grab some crab meat the next time I’m at the store, to give my Pops a try of this.

    A very Merry Christmas to ya, Diane!

      • That’s great as I feel badly – not only have I had internet problems, but my boss is getting ready to go on vacation as of Thursday so I’ve been staying a little later too. I had a post in mind for today on food (of all things … for me) and then I was so behind here, I decided to put it off. It is about cookies and I remembered an old post I did about Christmas cookies and searched for it … I will share this tidbit with you Diane – Wednesday is National Bake Cookies Day (12/18/18), so I’ll put my post over to Wednesday – perhaps I’ll be caught up by then!
