I couldn’t resist trying Paula Deen’s Crab Cakes. I have been wanting to try making crab cakes for so long, and I finally got around to doing it. These are incredibly good! I highly recommend doubling or tripling the recipe, as one batch doesn’t make very many.
(adapted from Paula Deen’s recipe on Food Network)
1 lb. crabmeat
3 finely chopped green onions
1/3 cup crushed crackers (Ritz)
1/4 cup mayo
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. Worch. sauce
1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 lemon juice
1 tsp. salt
Dash Cayenne pepper
Chopped Red/Yellow/Orange peppers (optional)
1 cup flour
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients, except peanut oil and flour. Mixture will be wet, and you might need to add just a little more cracker crumbs, but make sure that the mixture stays moist.
Form a small patty in your hand, dust one side with flour, then carefully flip over and dust the other side, while forming some more. Drop into hot peanut oil and fry on each side until golden brown.
Serve with tarter sauce, a citrus sauce, or any other desired sauce.
