Best Crab Cakes Ever!

When you catch fresh PNW crab straight from the ocean, click here,
you better have some good crab recipes! 

 I have tried many different crab cake recipes, but I always come back to this one time and time again!
This recipe is full of flavor, yet highlights the most important part of a crab cake--the crab!'s super simple!  Gotta love that!


1+ pound fresh crab (about 3+ cups)
1 cup mayo
1 egg beaten
1 cup panko crumbs
1-2 Tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning (depending how strong you like it.)
1 teaspoon dry mustard
juice of lemon
salt and pepper (to taste)
butter (optional for frying)

Mix all ingredients together,


adding the fresh, 3++ cups of crab last.  Mix well.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

  Form crab mixture into patties.


Place patties in a preheated pan with the melted butter.
Cook about 3 minutes on each side until... cakes are golden on all sides and warm throughout.

Can't you just smell these frying up on a hot griddle?
Dip these delicious morsels of heaven in your favorite seafood sauce.
Savor and repeat...Mmmm!
