Crab Cake


What is crab cake? A crab cake is an American dish composed of crab meat and various other ingredients, such as bread crumbs, milk, mayonnaise, eggs, yellow onions, and seasonings. Occasionally other ingredients such as red or green peppers or pink radishes are added, at which point the cake is then sautéed, baked, or grilled and then served. Crab cakes are traditionally associated with the area surrounding the Chesapeake Bay, in particular the state of Maryland and the city of Baltimore.

Whenever we eat at Western restaurant or shop at food market I never have any intention to order or buy any crab cake.I don't know why I'm not curious how crab cake taste .But recently when I shop at BJ's wholesale I saw crab claw meat on sale..I debate what should I do with the crab claw meat ..making soup or sauce? Well ,at last I'm curious enough and decided to make crab cake since I never try crab cake.I adapted this recipe from Paula Deen since the reviewers gave her 5 stars!!








Ingredients:
Adapted from HERE!
1 pound crab meat, free of shells( I used ready picked crab claw meat)
1/3 cup crushed crackers (recommended: Ritz)
1 stalk green onions (green and white parts), finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 egg
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp wasabi
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
Dash cayenne pepper
Flour, for dusting
1/2 cup peanut oil
Favorite dipping sauce, for serving




Method:
1:In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients, except for the flour and peanut oil. Shape into patties and dust with flour.

2:Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When oil is hot, carefully place crab cakes, in batches, in pan and fry until browned, about 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip crab cakes and fry on other side until golden brown, about 4 minutes..

3: Serve warm with preferred sauce.
