    Captain_67's Note:

    Do you LOVE crab cakes but HATE the price ?? At around $10 for frozen seafood plus a few bits & pieces, you can serve up 6 fat cakes that are better than a lot of cakes that I have paid big bucks for in restaurants. A healthy one & a half pound combination of fish, shrimp & crab that you will taste all the way through these gems.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 3-6

    Yield:

    cakes

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Make the crab cakes in advance so they have time to firm up in the refrigerator before you cook them.
    2. 2
      Saute onion & garlic then remove to cool.
    3. 3
      If fish was frozen, squeeze “gently” to remove excess water.
    4. 4
      If crab is cooked, rinse gently under cold water to remove excess salt then drain & dry.
    5. 5
      Dice fish & shrimp into peanut size chunks.
    6. 6
      Combine all ingredients & mix gently just until well blended.
    7. 7
      Shape the mixture into 6 fat crab cakes & shape into discs.
    8. 8
      Put them on a plate and stick them in the refrigerator, uncovered to chill & dry for 30 to 60 minutes.
    9. 9
      To serve, heat 3 tablespoons each of butter & olive oil in a pan over medium heat.
    10. 10
      Put the crab cakes with the top (dry) side down and cook for about 15 minutes, gently flip over & cook for another 15 minutes so each side is nice and crisp. Internal temp should hit 145F (62C).

      We loved this! I only used shrimp and crab meat and it was delicious. I served it with a nice salad and it made for a wonderful dinner. I think next time I will add some lemon juice/zest. Thanks Captain. Great recipe!
