- Add the cracker crumbs and parsley and mix well.
- Gently fold in crabmeat until just combined (try not to break up lumps of crabmeat).
- Using wet hands, shape mixture into 6 patties---8 patties if you like them smaller (do not pack too firmly; cakes should be as loose as possible and still hold their shape).

- Set oven on Broil ( around 450 ) and place crab cakes a non stick sprayed cookie sheet. Put crab cakes in oven on medium height rack.

These are so great and loaded with crab. One of my favorite crab cake recipes ever. Great post!lunasea in Orlando loved it
This sounds like a winner. Very traditional in the sense that you don't have too many ingrediants which could overpower the flavor of the crab. I'm from Baltimore so I grew up eating crabs. I still love them, no matter what the going price is.vino4dino in Baltimore loved it
