Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Process saltines in food processor until finely ground, about 25 seconds.
  2. Dry crab meat well with paper towels.
  3. Using rubber spatula, gently combine crab meat, scallions, melted butter, mayonnaise, egg yolks, mustard, hot sauce, Old Bay and 4 T of saltine crumbs in large bowl.
  4. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and shape into tight, mounded cakes. Press ONE side of each cake into remaining saltine cracker crumbs. Transfer cakes, crumb side DOWN, to large plate and refrigerate, covered. For at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours.
  5. Adjust oven rack 8 inches from broiler. Grease cookie sheet with softened butter.
  6. Transfer crab cakes to cookie sheet, crumb side DOWN.
  7. Broil crab cakes until golden, 12-15 minutes. No need to turn. Greasing the cookie sheet and having cracker crumbs on bottom of cakes allows bottom to cook and crisp up as well.
  8. Serve with lemon wedges.
