DIRECTIONS

  • Mix first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.
  • CAREFULLY fold in crabmeat by hand into well blended ingredients, so as not to break up crab lumps.
  • Add bread crumbs and, using hands, blend all ingredients -- still taking care to not break up lumps.
  • Carefully form into 10 slightly flattened cakes.
  • Refrigerate cakes several hours or overnight.
  • Prepare by either frying in olive oil or butter, or broiling.
  • Note: Frying in electric skillet in a little olive oil and butter for several minutes per side works very well for me.

“My mom made these when I was just a kid. Several years ago, DH took his first post-retirement job as Seafood Supervisor in a local grocery chain, made these for the seafood department, and the word spread, so that they were taking phone orders for "HIS" crab cakes ! The owner told him that Matzo Meal in place of the bread crumbs works very well due to the soda cracker addition.”
