Crab Cakes

Welp, here it is.  The first dinner in the new house.  And by special request from my dear little brother, Benji, CRAB CAKES!


Now I had never made these before, nor have I ever made any type of patty before, so this was quite an experiment for me.  What better time than we your house is filled with men with empty tummies??

I had some issues at first, but quickly got a hand of things once the first “cake” was done.  Also, I didn’t make any kind of sauce to top the patties with.  They were fine without, but would have been out to this world with a creamy lemon butter sauce on top.  Note made.

Recipe taken from by Paula Deen’s Kitchen.

  • 20110720_91 pound crabmeat
  • 1/3 cup crushed crackers (Ritz)
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • Flour, for dusting
  • 1/2 cup peanut oil
  • Favorite dipping sauce, for serving

In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients, except for the flour and peanut oil. Shape into patties and dust with flour.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When oil is hot, carefully place crab cakes, in batches, in pan and fry until browned, about 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip crab cakes and fry on other side until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Serve warm with preferred sauce.



Side note:  While at the market for the supplies for dinner, I came across the coolest thing!



I will hug you and squeeze you and call you George.
