pretzel crusted jumbo lump crab cakes

1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 large egg
1 tbsp. dijon mustard
1 tbsp. old bay seasoning
1/2 tsp. sweet paprika
2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 pound jumbo lump crab meat
3/4 cup finely ground pretzels
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 tbsp. vegetable oil

in a large bowl whisk the mayonnaise with the egg, dijon mustard, old bay, paprika, and worcestershire sauce. gently fold in the crab meat and 1/2 cup of the ground pretzels. refrigerate for 1 hour so that the pretzels are moist.

preheat the oven to 400 degrees. for the crab mixture into 6 equal patties. coat the crab cakes with the remaining 1/4 cup of ground pretzels. in an oven proof non stick skillet melt the butter in the oil. add the crab cakes and cook over medium high heat for 4 mins. or until browned. turn over the crab cakes and transfer the skillet to the preheated oven. bake for about 5 mins. or until they are browned all over, and serve.

enjoy :)
