How to Make Becky's Crab Cakes


  1. In a medium bowl, combine green onion, egg, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and Old Bay seasoning; mix well.
  2. Add bread crumbs and parsley; mix well. Then add crab meat. Stir until just mixed, taking care not to break up crab lumps.
  3. Mix to ensure all crab meat is well coated.
    Form into round and slightly flattened cakes with wet hands. Do not pack too firmly. Cakes should be as loose as possible and still hold their shape.
  4. Put the crab cakes on a large plate as they are shaped. Cover with foil and refrigerate at least 1 hour before cooking.
  5. Heat butter or oil in skillet over medium heat. Saute the crab cakes on each side until golden brown.
