Crab Cakes ~ question?

I want to make recipe that calls for Dry Mustard but I don't have any. Can I substitute regular mustard or should I go to the store and get some? I hate going to Wal-Mart for one item on a Sunday. It's a mad house over there.

You can use prepared mustard. Depending on the quantity of crab cake mixture your recipe makes, I would suggest starting with about 1/4 teaspoon Dijon or plain yellow mustard to start. You don't want the mustard to jump out at you. If you need to add more, do so to your taste.

Dry mustard is more concentrated. You can use prepared - but in small doses, so you don't dilute the recipe.

Thanks. Another question. I'm using Wasabi mustard as the dipping sauce instead of mayo or tartar sauce, which wouldn't clash with the Wasabi?

Of the two types of mustard, plain yellow mustard is milder. Dijon is spicier. Based on that, you can determine what you might like best.

You are very welcome. Horseradish will give you some bite and a nice accompaniment.
