Great to have these appetizer size cakes on hand, they thaw quickly and bake in a few minutes for that unexpected company or your own snack.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add onions, bell pepper, celery, seafood seasoning, salt and pepper. Cook stirring occasionally until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add parsley and green onions, cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, cool slightly.
2
Place crabmeat in medium bowl and add cooked vegetables. Add the mayonnaise and breadcrumbs. Stir gently.
3
Shape into cakes, should make about 12. You can make them smaller for appetizers. At this point I refrigerate them for a little while to firm up, or you can freeze them and thaw and bake them later.
4
Bake on a cookie sheet in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes, until they are golden.
5
Serve with lemon slices or your favorite seafood sauce.
