Ingredients

  • 1 pound lump crab meat (shell fragments removed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons Miracle Whip (or heavy mayo)
  • 5 saltine crackers (crushed)
  • 1 dash pepper
  • fresh parsley (to taste)
  • vegetable shortening (I prefer Crisco)

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients by gently folding and mixing together without breaking apart the crab meat lumps. Divide the mixture into 3 oz portions and mold into patties. Place the patties on a plate and refrigerate.
  2. Preheat pan and add 2 cups vegetable shortening and melt to a depth of about 1/4 inch. Bring up to 375˚ and gently place crab cakes into hot oil. When they turn crispy brown flip gently and cook for an additional 3 minutes or until browned.
  3. You can also bake or flat grill these crab cakes. Just be sure to spray the pan or grill with cooking spray before cooking.
