Chef Greg’s Crab Cakes
~ Makes 14 crab cakes
4 cans lump crab
1 cup mayonnaise
½ cup creole mustard or any spicy mustard
2 whole eggs
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon old bay seasoning
¼ cup chopped green onion
2 cups panko breadcrumbs
Mix all wet ingredients in a bowl. Add dry ingredients, combining thoroughly. Gently fold crab into mixture (do not drain) by hand, adding more crumbs if the mixture is too loose. Form 4 oz cakes, using additional bread crumbs to dust them.
Preheat oven to 350⁰ F. Cover the bottom of a frying pan with canola oil and place over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add cakes and cook until golden brown on each side, roughly 5 – 7 minutes. Transfer cakes to baking sheet and finish in the oven at 350⁰ F for 7 minutes.
Thanks and Enjoy it all!!!
