Delaware Bay Crab Cakes

Delaware Bay Crab Cakes created by Eileen C.

Almost all crabmeat. The sweetness of the crabmeat stands out. I don't recommend frying because they may fall apart. I usually make 6 medium size, but you could also make small ones for an appetizer.

    Do you saute the onion in the butter before adding to the mixture? And you can use fresh (moist bread crumbs for the mixture, and then dry to coat after dipping into the milk/egg mixture? There are a few steps that are assumed in this recipe, but I can't wait to try it! Looks yummy!

    These were FANTASTIC! I broiled instead of baking or frying and they came out perfectly. This is just the kind of simple crabcake recipe I've been searching for. I'll make these again and again. Thanks for a great recipe eileen0862!
