Earl's Crab Cake

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Seafood

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Backfin crab meat
  • 2 ds Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ds Dry mustard
  • 2 tb Mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 ts Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 Egg, beaten


Make sure there are no shells in crab meat. There shouldn't be very many in
back fin. Handle carefully so that the meat remains in lumps. Put all
ingredients in a bowl and carefully mix so that the crab meat remains in
lumps. I do this by repeatedly lifting the lumps with my fingers and
turning them over in the bowl. Form into four crab cakes and place on a
platter or dish. Place in refrigerator for at least an hour, longer if time
permits. This allows egg to gel enough to hold crab cake together when
frying. Deep fry in hot vegetable oil (375 degrees) for about 90 seconds or
until crab cakes are light brown. Drain on paper towel. Serve on bread or
saltine crackers.

NOTE: NEVER put bread or cracker crumbs inside a crab cake sandwich.
