Crab Cakes it is!

This Crab Cake Recipe received a FIVE STAR rating on Food Network .com.  The photo alone makes me drool!  I'll dedicate today's recipe to all those dungenous crabs out there in the Pacific Ocean who are just waiting to be made into cakes! 

Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 18 min
Serves: 4 to 6


  • 1 pound fresh crab meat, picked free of shells
  • 1/3 cup crushed crackers (recommended: Ritz)
  • 3 green onions (green and white parts), finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sause
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • Flour, for dusting
  • 1/2 cup peanut oil
  • Favorite dipping sauce, for serving


In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients, except for the flour and peanut oil. Shape into patties and dust with flour.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When oil is hot, carefully place crab cakes, in batches, in pan and fry until browned, about 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip crab cakes and fry on other side until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Serve warm with preferred sauce.
