Ingredients

1 large
egg, beaten
2 Tbsp
light mayonnaise
2 Tbsp
green onion tops, minced
1/2 tsp
old bay seasoning or similar spice
1/4 tsp
tabasco sauce
1 lb
crab meat
10-15
non-fat saltine crackers, finely crushed
6 Tbsp
olive oil
flour, to dust
4 tsp
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix egg, mayo, onions, seasoning and hot sauce in small bowl until mayo is completely incorporated; set aside.
2
Lightly break up crab meat in a medium bowl. Add milk; toss to coat. Add crushed saltines; toss gently once again. Using a 1/3 cup measure, scoop up a portion, forming the mixture into a very compact cake. Repeat to make 8 cakes. Lightly dust with flour. (Can be covered with plastic and refrigerated up to 8-hours.)

About 10 minutes before serving, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully add crab cakes; saute, turning once, until golden brown. About 3 minutes per side.
