How To Make crabmeat cakes with mustard sauce

  • 1
    Prepare the crab cakes: Pulse the bread in a food processor to make coarse crumbs; spread out the crumbs on a sheet pan. In a large bowl, mix the crab, mayonnaise, egg yolk, celery and pickles. Form into 8 oval-shaped cakes. Dredge each crab cake in the breadcrumbs, coating them all over; place on a plate and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Add the chicken broth and milk. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until thickened, 5 minutes. Stir in the mustard and mustard seeds; simmer to develop the flavors, about 5 more minutes. Whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon butter; add 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Keep warm until ready to serve.
