I love crabMEAT, however, in general I'm NOT a crabCAKE lover because the ingrdients tend to overpower the subtle taste of the crabmeat. This recipe is the first and ONLY crabcake I have ever tasted that doesn't allow the flavor of the crabmeat to get lost. Surprisingly simple and yet it tastes like sophisticated dinner.
- 2 cups backfin crab meat, picked over
- 1 cup fresh breadcrumb
- 2 large eggs
- 1⁄2 cup heavy cream
- 1 dash hot sauce
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
- 2 teaspoons grated onions
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
