Another Great Crab Cake Recipe

This is another recipe I tried to create for Tim. It is a kicked up version of the Traditional Maryland Crab Cake. I hope ya’ll like a little spiced up crab cake. Give it a try and let me know what ya’ll think.

Kicked up Maryland Crab Cakes:

2 pounds crab meat (back fin is best but claw meat works just as well or a combination of both )

2 eggs

1 teaspoon lemon juice

½ Cup mayonnaise

¼ cup mustard

1 small sweet onion, minced fine

1 green or red pepper, finely chopped (I use Red Peppers since Tim can not eat Green Peppers)

1 cup crushed Ritz Crackers

1 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce or your favorite hot sauce

a few red pepper flakes ( 6 -8 flakes) optional

2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce

1 ½ teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning

1 bunch parsley, chopped

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well. Form into crab cakes and refrigerate. Broil in oven or fry in butter (no margarine please) until golden brown. Serve with fresh salsa or favorite condiments or make a terrific sandwich with lettuce and tomato. Hope to see ya’ll really soon.
