Lo-Fi Crab Cakes
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
What's In It
  • 2 cans crab meat, well drained (4.5 oz each)
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons, dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¼ cup panko bread crumbs (set aside another ½ Cup for breading)
How To Do It
  1. Combine the crab meat, scallions, eggs, mustard, lemon juice, and ¼ cup of bread crumbs in a mixing bowl.
  2. Pour the rest of the bread crumbs into a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Divide the crab mixture into six portions, form them into patties, and let rest on a plate for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Set a large sauté pan over medium heat and add just enough olive oil to coat the bottom. Once the oil starts to shimmer, cover each crab cake with bread crumbs and add to the pan.
  5. Cook each side for about three minutes, or until golden brown (I wonder who first came up with the term "golden brown." Man, if they had the foresight to trademark that sucker...).
  6. Remove to a plate lined with paper towel and salt while it's still sizzling.
  7. Eat. Smile.
