Crab Cakes

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl combine egg, soft bread crumbs, mayonnaise, green onion, dill, seafood seasoning, and pepper. Stir in flaked crabmeat. Divide mixture into 8 portions. Moisten hands and form each portion into a 2-1/2-inch patty.
  2. Place crab cakes in a greased shallow baking pan. Combine the dry bread crumbs and cooking oil. Sprinkle over crabcakes pressing to adhere. Bake, uncovered, in a 450 degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until light brown. (Or, do not place in baking pan; coat with crumbs as above. In an extra large skillet cook patties in 2 tablespoons hot oil over medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes or until brown, turning halfway through cooking. Add additional oil, if necessary. Drain on paper towels.) Serve crab cakes with Red Pepper Relish (see recipe below), if desired. Makes 4 servings (2 crab cakes per serving).
