16 min Prep: 10 min Cook: 6 min
Serves: 6 Save

Ingredients (10)

  • 1 lb Lump Crab Meat
  • 1 cup Crushed Saltine Crackers
  • ½ cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 T Dijon Mustard
  • 1 T Yellow Mustard
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 T Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • ¼ tsp Tabasco Sauce
  • 1 cup Vegetable Oil


  1. Spread crabmeat out on a flat pan and sprinkle crushed Saltines over the top.
  2. In a small bowl mix together mayonnaise, egg, mustards, Worcestershire sauce, Old Bay Seasoning and Tabasco Sauce. Pour mayonnaise mixture over crabmeat; using your hands gently toss, taking care not to break up the lumps of crabmeat. Let mixture stand 5 minutes.
  3. Form mixture into 6 mounded rounds about 3 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick. Do not pack the batter too firmly. This is very important. The cakes should be as loose as possible, yet still hold their shape.
  4. Pour oil into a deep skillet and heat. Sauté crab cakes a few at a time until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Remove to paper towels to drain briefly.
