Skillet Crab Cakes

Skillet Crab Cakes is a flavorsome recipe that can be cooked right where you catch the crabs or when you return home.

The recipe starts by making a crab salad, alternately this could be leftover crab salad from a previous meal. A few specific seasoning sare in the recipe but you can swap these out for your preferred ones on crab.

The actual frying of the crab cakes is the trickiest bit, but the big tip is the medium temperature and touching as little as possible, allowing them to firm up through the cooking process helps keep them together when flipping or serving.

Ingredients

Crab Salad

3 cups cooked shelled crab

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 chopped green onions (spring onion)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Slap yo mamma seasoning, to taste (or similar Cajun seasoning)

Old Bay seasoning, to taste

1/2 cup butter

1 tablespoons olive oil

Recipe Directions

  1. Combine the crab, mayonnaise, green onion, lemon juice, Slap Your Mamma, and Old Bay in a large bowl then gently fold together.

  2. Roast the Anaheim and Jalapeño peppers by coating in olive oil then charing on the grill. Place charred peppers in a plastic bag. Remove and dispose of skin, stem, and seeds. Dice into small pieces. Add to the crab salad.

  3. Add to the crab salad the egg and 1/2 a cup of the breadcrumbs. Stir until well combined. Slowly add additional breadcrumbs until a sturdy texture that will allow the forming of patties.
