    This is an updated version of our original Crab Cake recipe. It uses less bread crumbs and a few different ingredients.  It also includes the perfect spices to complement this superior shellfish.  The lump crabmeat costs a bit, but prepared with these ingredients & spices, it is well worth the expense.  An exceptionally delicious recipe for one of our favorite seafoods.



SEAFOOD RUB, Garlic Granules, Cayenne Powder



1 lb lump backfin crabmeat

2 green onions, chopped

1 cup Panko bread crumbs

1 egg white

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 tsp Garlic Granules

1 tsp Seafood Rub

1/4 tsp Cayenne Powder


olive oil

Directions:  Blend together all ingredients (excluding the oil), and then form them into 6 fat patties.  Refrigerate the patties for 2 hours.  Fry them over medium high heat in a heavy skillet with the bottom of the pan covered in olive oil.  Fry each Pattie until golden brown on both sides.  Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
