How to make it

  • Sautee the onion and a shallot in butter until sweated, and just starting to brown.
  • Mix the crab, onion, shallots (raw and cooked), mustard, egg, and parsley together in a bowl. (Add bread or mayonnaise if the mixture is too wet or dry to form cakes, or to stretch the recipe.)
  • Form into cakes, set on a cookie sheet, preferably on wax paper or foil, and refrigerate for at least half an hour till they set a little bit.
  • Roll the cakes in bread crumbs, and pan fry in butter till they're golden brown, and fully cooked in the middle. Promptly serve.
  • If making them ahead of time, wait until you're almost ready to serve to bread them, the crumbs can get soggy otherwise.
