    Chef #208121's Note:

    Coastal Cooking with John Shields, 2004. This is a nice working recipe for crab cake not as fancy as the previous one but it has all the instructions and serves the same amount of people. If you wish the other feel free to google because others have placed it on the net.

      This was my first time making - or even eating - crab cakes. I used 6 oz. of canned crab (Blasphemous, I know. But it's what I had.) and made 1/4 of the recipe, using a whole egg. I seasoned the mixture to taste with salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, oregano, paprika, cayenne pepper. Because the mixture had more egg and was probably a little looser than it should have been, I made six smaller patties. I was worried they were going to stick or fall apart, but they didn't. Overall, it was good and easier than I expected for not knowing what I was doing. Thank you!
