Last night I had some crab meat that I needed to use so I just created a fast Crab Alfredo pasta. So easy. Just the noodles, meat, sauce, and some veggies. It was tasty, but not a recipe. I wanted to try this other recipe for Maryland crab cakes I found. And guess what? It was lovely! They had a great flavor and weren't as hard as I thought they'd be. So here is the recipe which I will be adding to my favorites list!
Maryland Crab Cakes
1 6oz pkg crab meat
2 egg whites
2 Tbspn green onion finely chopped
2 Tbspn mayonnaise
1 Tbspn parsley, snipped
2 tsp Dijon Mustard
2 tsp fresh chopped thyme or ½ tsp. dried crushed thyme
½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
½ cup fine seasoned bread crumbs (reserve ¼ cup)
¼ cup cornmeal
2 Tbspn olive oil
Thaw crab if frozen; drain. In a bowl, combine egg whites, green onion, mayonnaise, parsley, mustard, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, and ¼ cup bread crumbs. Stir in crab; mix well. Shape into 4-5 patties about ¾ inch thick. Combine the remaining bread crumbs and cornmeal mixture. Dip each side of crab cakes in mixture. Fry crab cakes in oil over medium heat for about 3 minutes on each side or until golden and heated through. Add additional oil if necessary. Serve hot with lemon wedges.
