Crab Cakes

When the crabbing is really really good, and you're bored with the great old boiled crab feast, here's some variation...

  • Clean and boil 1 or more crabs, Dungeness or Rock.
  • Unshell the shell fragments! Put the crab meat in a bowl of water and swish around, the heavier shells will sink to bottom. Scoop out meat and press out as much water as possible.
  • For 1 crab, dice half an onion and 2 stalks of celery. Saute in oil until browned.
  • Add onion and celery to crab mean. Crack an egg into it and add 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise. Mix well.
  • Add spices to taste -- some paprika adds nice zing.
  • Crumble some crackers or corn flakes into a shallow bowl. Scoop a golf ball size of crab mix, roll into crumbs -- don't worry if it isn't well-formed, it will firm up in pan.
  • Heat frying pan to medium, add cooking oil or butter. Drop ball in, flatten with spatula to 1 cm thick.
  • Cook until brown on both sides.
  • Serve with cocktail sauce: stir ketchup, mayo, and tabasco sauce.
  • Voila....crab cakes!

Probably not heart smart, but it sure tastes good!

Thanks to Jolly Rogers Fishing for a great day's crabbing.
