DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together all ingredients BUT the crab.
  • If the mixture seems a little dry, add more cream. You want cakes that are moist but firm enough to hold cakes together.
  • Fold in crab meat, making sure mixture is well-combined, but being careful not to break up the lumps too much.
  • Store in fridge for 1/2 hour or so.
  • Broil until first side is brown, then flip and do the same. (Some people like to pan fry or even deep fry. Just cook until browned).
