These are the best! I made these for our Christmas party one year, and they were gone so fast, I didn't even get one. You have to use reall fresh crabmeat, and make sure the pieces are not too big, and never, never use imitation crab.
Cook onion and green pepper in butter in a large skiller over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until tender. remove from heat, stir in crabmeat, 3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs, parsley, and next 7 ingredients. Shape mixture into 8 patties; dredge patties in remaining breadcrumbs.
Pour oil to 1/4 inch depth into a large heavy skillet. Fry patties in hot oil over medium high heat 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Garnish.
