Crab Cakes

I will admit I have never had crab cakes until now. When crab cakes are competing with mozzarella sticks on a menu, the cheese will always win. Now, I do like seafood. My son loves seafood so when I heard crab cakes were one of my Mother-in-laws favorite food, I had to make them. I was surprised how easy they were to make. I did research several recipes which called for some condiments which I would have never imagined combining with seafood. I wanted my crab cakes to taste like crab so I kept these crab cakes pretty simple. I liked them but my son, well he loved them.
Crab Cakes
1 lb. crab meat
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
1 Tbsp fresh Parsley, chopped
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
32 Town House crackers, crushed
1/4 cup vegetable oil

  1. In a large bowl, combine the crab meat, mayonnaise, seasoning, parsley, egg, and fresh lemon juice. Mix well.
  2. Add half of the crushed crackers to the mixture and mix until incorporated.
  3. On a plate, evenly spread out the remaining crushed crackers.
  4. Form the crab meat mixture into patties.
  5. Press the crab meat patties into the crushed crackers. Coat both sides.
  6. In a large pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat.
  7. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the crab cakes into the pan.
  8. Cook the crab cake until golden for about 4 minutes.
  9. Carefully, turn the patty over and cook the other side of the crab cake until golden brown.
  10. Removed from the pan and place on a paper towel lined plate.
  11. Serve immediately.
