How to Make GULF CRABCAKES (sallye)


  1. Carefully pick through the crab meat and remove any shells or cartilage

    In a mixing bowl, break up crab meat gently with a fork (do not overdo or cakes will be "mushy"
  2. Place all other ingredients in with the crab meat and blend with a fork until well mixed.

    Again, take care not to overmix the crab meat
  3. Heat butter and olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat

    Form crab cake mixture into 2" patties and place in heated oil

    Brown one side, then place under broiler with unbrowned side toward the broiler for 2 minutes

    Any extra cakes can be frozen for later use
