    CFRP's Note:

    These crab cakes are the best - no fillers, no gimmicks so don't use imitation. Splurge for the good stuff and you won't regret it. Except for the crab, you can really add the rest of the ingredients to taste. Instead of doubling or tripling the recipe, make several batches to ensure the crab is seasoned properly. This recipe will make about 6 dinner sized crab cakes (or crab cake sandwiches!) but also delicious mini hors d'oeuvres. Serve with the mixed greens and lemon vinaigrette and cole slaw. Or serve on buns with tartar sauce for crab cakes sandwiches!

    Crab Cakes

    Lemon Vinaigrette


    1. 1
      Mix all ingredients except for mayo and bread crumbs in bowl. Make sure crab is coated with seasonings.
    2. 2
      Fold mayo and bread crumbs into mixture gently.
    3. 3
      Form into crab cakes and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until firm.
    4. 4
      Melt butter over medium heat until just beginning to brown. Add crab cakes, taking care not to crowd them in the pan. Make in batches or use more than one skillet if need be.
    5. 5
      Saute crab cakes 4-5 minutes a side. Serve immediately or, if cooking in batches, keep in warm oven (150 or 200) until ready to serve.
    6. 6
      To make vinaigrette, whisk all ingredients together. Will keep in refrigerator for a week so it's easy to make ahead.
    7. 7
      Toss vinaigrette with mixed baby greens and serve crab cakes over top. Drizzle extra vinaigrette over crab cakes.
