How to make it
- In a medium mixing bowl combine egg, 1/4 cup yogurt, mayonnaise or salad dressing, parsley, worcestershire sauce, mustard, paprika, pepper. Stir in crabmeat and crushed crackers.
- Shape crab mixture into five 3-inch patties.
- Spray a shallow baking pan with nonstick spray coating. Arrange patties in pan. Broil 4-6 inches from heat for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Do not turn patties during broiling.
- Serve crab cakes on tomato slices with remaining yogurt. Garnish with lemon wedges.
- Make-Ahead Tip: Prepare crab patties; cover and chill up to 8 hours. Broil as above.
- **I plan to try this recipe under the broiler first, but I'd also like to try frying them and see which I like better.
