How to Make Crab Cakes


  • 1Break up the crab meat and combine in a meduim bowl with bread crumbs, green onions, garlic and ginger; mix well.
  • 2Shape into 14 patties, about 1/2 inch thick and 2 inches in diameter.

    Be patient, it does take some time to get the patties to stay together!

    If making these ahead of time, after you have formed the patties, cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours before cooking.
  • 3Heat 1 teaspoon of Sesame oil and 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

    Plece half of the crab cakes in skillet. Cook 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Careful when turning, they do sometimes fall apart. Transfer to serving plate; keep warm.
