These were soo good! I also found them difficult to work with, even after about 40 minutes in the fridge and 20 in the freezer. However, as long as you are are either very good with a spatula or prepared to eat crab cakes that look less than perfect, you will not be disappointed because they taste absolutely amazing!

I tried "rolling them in bread crumbs", which just made a mess. So I ended up plopping the shaped cake in a pile of bread crumbs and then sprinkling the top with another batch of crumbs, resulting in a mostly bread crumb covered cake and far fewer casualties.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix everything except the egg in a bowl. Taste and adjust seasonings and then add the egg when satisfied. Shape filling into 2 inch crabcakes. Roll the cakes in bread crumbs and then refrigerate for about an hour to firm up.
  2. Heat 1/4 cup of canola oil in a shallow pan and cook cakes for about 3 minutes per side, try to turn them only one time. Serve with your favorite tartar sauce or aioli.
