pan fried jumbo lump crab cakes

makes 6 crab cakes

1 lb. lump or jumbo lump crab meat
2.5 tbsp. panko bread crumbs
2 tbsp. mayonnaise
1.5 tbsp. old bay seasoning
1.5 tbsp. dijon mustard
1 egg (beaten)
fresh cracked pepper to taste

prep time - 30 mins.
cook time - 10 mins.

place the crab meat in a large bowl and let stand for 20 mins. to air out. after 20 mins. mix in the mayonnaise, dijon mustard, panko bread crumbs, old bay, the beaten egg, and pepper. then mix all together with the crab meat. try not to over mix, as you do want to keep the shape of the crab, but you do want everything to blend together. separate into 6 equal size patties, and pack quite tight together.

in a medium pan heat up olive oil over medium high heat, enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. when the oil is heated place the crab cakes in the pan and cook for 5 mins. on each side. after you place them in the pan do not move them... just let them sit there before flipping. you may need to do 3 cakes at a time. do not over crowd the pan. just do in batches.

this recipe makes 6 crab cakes. if you need more just double everything.

enjoy. :)
