Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place crabmeat and all other ingredients except oil into a large bowl and mix well. Shape mixture into patties just like making hamburgers. I use a hamburger patty press. Coat outside of crabcakes with additional dry breadcrumbs. Saute crab cakes in clarified butter or peanut oil until they are brown on the outside and cooked through on the inside. Serve with Chive Sauce Recipe.
  2. This recipe freezes well. Roll crab cakes in dry breadcrumbs after thawing.
