Anyone make Crab Cakes?

I just bought some canned crab meat and want to make some crab cakes. I saw a couple recipes here and have been searching the web. Does anyone have a recipe they have tested and liked. This stuff is not cheap. I made some in the past but they were just not quite what I was looking for.

What the Marylanders say is that the ratio of binder (breading, eggs, what have you) to crabmeat should be minimal--just enough to form a patty. Like meatloaf, there's a zillion recipes. I don't have one because we can buy pretty good crabcakes around here and it is expensive.

I had some Crab Cakes at Long John Silvers. They were pretty good. Now I got a craving to make Crab Cakes.

Well, by golly, I have one from my college days in the Northeast:

Crab Cakes

1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Creole mustard
2 teaspoons grated horseradish
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons crab boil seasoning (Old Bay works also)
1 teaspoon coarsely-ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
Several dashes hot pepper sauce (I use habanero)
1 pound backfin crabmeat, screened carefully for any shell fragments
3/4 cup saltine cracker crumbs
1/2 cup minced red bell pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
Lemon wedges

In a large bowl, blend together well the egg, mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, crab boil seasoning, pepper, salt and hot pepper sauce. Gently mix in the crabmeat, cracker crumbs and bell pepper. Form eight patties, each about ¾-inch thick. Preheat the oil and butter together over medium-high heat to about 300 degrees. Fry the crab cakes 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until they are golden, then drain well.

Serve immediately with a squeeze of lemon juice.

OOHHHHHHH!!!!!

And it works every time to the delight of all!

Old Bay is key. That's all they use around here - also used for crab boils.

Hey Bang......

I have one that uses corn, scallions, mustard and coriander. Let me know if you want the recipe I would be happy to share it with you. BTW it's served with chipole mayo.
