I found this ages ago on the food network site. It is definitely the best crabcake recipe out there (and I have tried many!) Serve with a spicy mayo made of 1 cup mayo, 3 T chili sauce and 1 T lemon juice.

  1. Carefully pick over the crabmeat feeling for bits of shell and cartilage and discarding them.
  2. Stir in the peppers, seasoning and mayonnaise.
  3. Stir in up to 1/2 cup of bread crumbs to mixture or as much is needed to bind ingredients.
  4. Shape into 4 - 6 cakes, depending on desired size. Place on a plate and chill for 1 hour in refrigerator.
  5. Dip each cake into beaten egg and then into bread crumbs and set aside.
  6. Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat, and cook cakes on each side until golden brown.
