Crab Cakes

  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 1/2 Tbl Mayo
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup Green Onion finely diced
  • 2 Tbl Parsley chopped (optional)
  • 1 lb Crab meat
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • Peanut oil for cooking
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • Celery seed ground
  • Paprika
  • Black Pepper
  • Red Pepper
  • Dry Mustard
  • Ginger
  • Cardamom

Prepare the spice mix – Using a 1/4 Tsp scoop, mix one to three spoonfuls of each spice according to taste. This is enough for two batches.

Make the patties – Combine all but crab and bread crumbs. Blend with mixer on medium. Add bread crumbs and blend with mixer on low. Carefully fold in crab meat. Make six patties, then refrigerate at least one hour. This will allow the filling ingredients to blend.

Cook the patties – Pour 1/4 to 1/2 inch peanut oil into large skillet. Cook on medium heat 3-5 minutes per side. Keep warm in oven at 150.

Sides – Use aioli or peanut sauce for dip. Make some cornbread. How about roasted vegetables or corn on the cob?
