Old Bay Crab Cakes

Old Bay Crab Cakes


  • 1 Teaspoon prepared mustard
  • ¼ Cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 Teaspoons old Bay seasoning
  • 2 Teaspoons parsley flakes
  • ¼-1 Cup bread crumbs
  • 1 Pound crab meat***


Drain the crab meat, and pick through it for shells. Put the crab into a bowl and set aside.

In a medium bowl whisk together the mayo, egg, mustard, old bay seasoning, parsley flakes and green onion and gently mix in crab meat. Next, sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the crab mixture and gently fold in the breadcrumbs until everything just comes together. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.

Shape the crab mixture into 8 cakes. Fry the crab cakes in a non stick skillet using butter, about 4 minutes per side. Serve with lemon wedges and your favorite dipping sauce (mine is spicy mayo!!)

*** Imitation crab can be substituted. Make sure to break up the large clumps of meat.
