Ingredients

  • CRAB CAKES
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup celery, finely diced (you’ll need one stalk)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 pound lump crab meat
  • 1/2 cup panko
  • Canola oil
  • QUICK TARTAR SAUCE
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon minced red onion
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice, to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Combine the egg, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, Old Bay, salt, celery, and parsley in a large bowl and mix well. Add the crab meat, after checking it for any hard and sharp cartilage, and the panko crumbs. Gently fold mixture together until just combined, being careful not to shred the crab meat. Shape into 6 crab cakes (about ½ cup each) and place on prepared baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Preheat a large nonstick pan to medium heat and coat with canola oil. When oil is hot, place crab cakes in pan and cook until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes per side. Be careful as oil may splatter. Serve immediately with tartar sauce or a squeeze of lemon. To make the tartar sauce, combine all ingredients and chill for at least 30 minutes.
