Who doesn't like crab cakes? I found this on another site and the photo looked so amazing I just had to save this recipe. Cooking time is approximately 10 minutes..........the extra 60 minutes is for the refrigeration time required (prior to frying).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pick over the crabmeat to remove any shell or cartilage, trying not to break up the chunks too much.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the butter and olive oil. Moisten hands with a little water and shape the mixture into eight fat ball-like cakes. (They will flatten slightly during cooking.) Place them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  3. While crab cakes are in the fridge, prepare sauce. Combine all ingredients, mix well and chill.
  4. In a large skillet, heat the butter and oil over medium-high heat. Carefully lay the crab cakes into the butter and oil and fry until crusty and browned, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
  5. Serve with sauce.
  6. Serve hot, with Key Lime Mustard Sauce.
