I love crab! It is definitely one of my favorite foods. Crab legs, crab cakes, crab wontons, crab bisque, she crab soup… I could go on and on. I found this great recipe on Pinterest for crab cakes and had to give it a try. This was my first attempt at making homemade crab cakes and I must say that they turned out pretty good. Serve with a little lemon and a spicy remoulade sauce. They were the perfect appetizer to our grouper nuggets. It was a seafood kind of night!
Recipe adapted from Once Upon A Chef
1 large egg
2½ tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
1 pound lump crab meat
½ cup panko
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Combine the egg, mayonnaise, Worcestershire, Old Bay, salt, and parsley in a large bowl and mix well. Add the crab meat (be sure to check the meat for any hard and sharp cartilage) and panko; gently fold mixture together until just combined, being careful not to shred the crab meat. Shape into 6 crab cakes (about ½ cup each) and place on prepared baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Preheat a large nonstick pan to medium heat and coat with coconut oil. When oil is hot, place crab cakes in pan and cook until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes per side. Be careful as oil may splatter. Serve immediately with lemon and remoulade sauce.
