This is the BEST crab cake recipe I have ever made. I didn't change a thing! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I have saved this recipe for everytime I have fresh crabmeat on hand.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients, except for the flour and peanut oil. Shape into patties and dust with flour.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When oil is hot, carefully place crab cakes, in batches, in pan and fry until browned, about 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip crab cakes and fry on other side until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Serve warm with preferred sauce.
