Easy Crab Cake Recipe

Crab Cake Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 cup saltine cracker meal or plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1 pound lump crabmeat, picked over for shells and cartilage
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • Remoulade sauce (a delicious sauce for crab cakes)

How to Make Crab Cakes:

  • In a large bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, egg, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, parsley, Old Bay, and 1/4 cup of the cracker meal. Stir in the crabmeat, being careful not to break it up. Form into 1-inch cakes about 1/2 inch thick. Dip the cakes into the remaining 3/4 cup of cracker meal and place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Refrigerate for about an hour to firm up.

    Do-Ahead Tip: At this point, you can cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Bring to room temperature before continuing.

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.

  • Brush the cakes with the melted butter and bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes, turning once.

    Do-Ahead Tip: At this point, you can let cool, stack the cakes in plastic containers, separated by waxed or parchment paper, and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost overnight in the refrigerator, bring to room temperature, and reheat in a 350°F oven for 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Serve warm with remoulade sauce. Designer Party Supplies
