  • 2.Using gloved hands, gently mix in crab meat, then add bread crumbs.
  • 3.Spread a thin layer of plain bread crumbs on your work surface.
  • 4.Form crab mixture into equal balls, approximately two inches in diameter. Place on crumbs.
  • 5.Gently flatten the ball of crab mixture and round the edges. Form cakes about one-half inch thick and three inches round. Refrigerate.
  • 6.In a sauté pan, melt 2 tablespoons of oil until hot. Gently slide in crab cakes 2 at a time.
  • 7.Brown on one side approximately two-to-three minutes. Turn and brown on the other side. Turn down heat to simmer and cook crab cakes another 5-8 minutes.
  • Chef's Tip:.
  • While you may be tempted to increase the amount of bread crumbs used, you’ll receive the best sauté results with the thin layer as described above.
