Tim’s Maryland Crab Cakes

This is a recipe I just came up with today. Tim and I went crabbing and I steamed the crabs as soon as we got home which was around 1 am. We picked the crabs this afternoon.Tim could not believe that I had never picked a crab before. So he was very calm and patient with me as I learned to pick the crabs. I personally would rather buy the crab meat than to pick it but Tim says that takes all the fun out of it. But that is his opinion not mine.

Maryland Crab Cakes 1:

1 pound fresh lump crab meat

1 cup low-fat mayonnaise

1 tablespoon Dijon

1 egg, beaten

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

7 – 10 RITZ crackers, crushed

2 tablespoons fresh minced parsley

Put crab meat in bowl. Mix rest of ingredients and add to crab meat. Chill for 2 hours. Form into 6 to 8 cakes. Place on buttered sheet pan and bake at 450 degrees until golden brown. Or fry in butter not margarine for 5 – 7 minutes on each side.

Tim really enjoyed these for lunch today. So I hope ya’ll give them a try and let me know what ya’ll think.

See ya’ll soon.
