dry bread crumbs
prepared Dijon-style mustard
Old Bay Seasoning TM
We substituted Townhouse crackers for the breadcrumbs. For our first time making crab cakes they were very good. Although not as good as our favorite restaurant (best crab cakes in Maryland) we will be making this again. For the person that thought they weren't flat enough, you should be able to make them as flat or as round as you like when you shape the cakes. They are not going to flatten more when you cook them. They will also hold together better if you refrigerate the cakes before cooking.
This my first effort making crabcakes & I followed this recipe as written. I found the crabcakes to be a little bit dry and the Dijon and Old Bay flavors overwhelmed the delicate taste of the crab. I was hoping for more seafood taste. (Used canned crab)
i added just alittle bit of fresh lemon juice and used the Japenense style bread crumbs. i love this recipe.
I thought these crabcakes were the best. My husband just loved them and he can be a tough critic. I used the seasoned bread crumbs, they were a little salty, may try the plain next time. I would definitely make them for company. These cakes are so easy to make. The canned crab meat is good. I fried them in butter, and we ate them plain, but they would be good with tartar sauce, also. Thank you! A delicious & easy-to-make dinner, I searched with french fries & coleslaw!
added diced green onions and red bell pepper in the mix. Dipped them into panko bread crumbs to ad crunch
I thought this was a great recipe. I added a tiny bit of parmesan cheese and a little more crab than the recipe called for and they were awesome!
This recipe was VERY easy and QUICK. I served it as an appetizer for a dinner party that I was having. I altered it a little. I added about 1/4 tsp of fresh lemon juice and I broiled the crab cakes instead of frying them. They were just perfect. I served them with a side of chipolte dipping sauce - YUMMY!! Can't wait to make this recipe again!! Everyone just loved it!!
These crab cakes were great. It was the first time we tried making them at home,
but they turned out delicious. We will definitely make them again and probably at
some point for guests.
