DIRECTIONS

  • Make the crab cakes in advance so they have time to firm up in the refrigerator before you cook them.
  • Saute onion & garlic then remove to cool.
  • If fish was frozen, squeeze “gently” to remove excess water.
  • If crab is cooked, rinse gently under cold water to remove excess salt then drain & dry.
  • Dice fish & shrimp into peanut size chunks.
  • Combine all ingredients & mix gently just until well blended.
  • Shape the mixture into 6 fat crab cakes & shape into discs.
  • Put them on a plate and stick them in the refrigerator, uncovered to chill & dry for 30 to 60 minutes.
  • To serve, heat 3 tablespoons each of butter & olive oil in a pan over medium heat.
  • Put the crab cakes with the top (dry) side down and cook for about 15 minutes, gently flip over & cook for another 15 minutes so each side is nice and crisp. Internal temp should hit 145F (62C).
