How to make it

  • Prep does not include chilling time
  • Combine everything except breadcrumbs and crabmeat and breading in a big bowl
  • Honestly easier to just squeeze it around with your hands until it's perfectly combined.
  • Then gently fold in the bread crumbs and crab meat until well-mixed.
  • If the mixture is too wet, add some more bread crumbs.
  • If it's too dry to stick together, add another egg white.
  • Shape the mixture into 8-10 cakes, pressing them firmly into shape.
  • Then chill them in the fridge for 30 minutes while you prepare the breading, by combining in a bowl:
  • For breading after chilling:
  • Toss breading ingrdients together.
  • When the crab cakes are chilled and a little firmer, set them gently into the breading, scoop some breading on top and gently press it into the cake.
  • To cook, you have two options:
  • Saute: Pour a half inch of canola oil into a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • When the oil is hot, saute the crab cakes for 3 or 4 minutes on each side, then drain on paper towels.
  • Oven fry: Preheat a foil-lined baking pan at 400F.
  • When the pan is hot, remove it from the oven, add a few Tablespoons of canola oil and shake it around to evenly distribute it.
  • Then set the cakes into the hot pan and put it back in the oven.
  • Bake 8 minutes on each side, then drain on paper towels.
