Oven-Roasted Crab Cakes

Recipe by CandeB
READY IN: 18mins
YIELD: 6 cakes




  • Sort through crab and discard any bits of shell. Press out moisture with paper towels.
  • In a large bowl, combine celery, minced chives, mayonnaise, egg, mustard, and Old Bay; mix well with a fork.
  • Add crab and 1/4 cup panko; stir gently just to mix.
  • Put in fridge for 1/2 an hour or more if time permits.
  • Put remaining panko in a shallow bowl.
  • Shape crab mixture into about 6 cakes about a 1/2 inch thick.
  • Place each cake in panko to coat on each side - place on baking stone or dish and reform into shape. Should be sort of flat across - about a 1/2 inch thick - and formed around the edges.
  • Bake in a 475°F regular or convection oven until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes.
  • With a spatula, transfer crab cakes to a platter. Add any sauce you want - but they turned out great without any sauce.
