2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp worcestershire or dash of tabasco
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 lb cooked crab, flaked or broken up
1 cup fresh bread crumbs or 1/2 unsalted cracker crumbs
flour for dredging
How to prepare
Mix the parsley, dry mustard, worcestershire or tabasco, eggs, and mayonnaise together. Add the crab and crumbs, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Simply taste it and go from there! Divide the mixture into 8 cakes and dredge in flour. These can be deep-fried at 375 degrees to 380 degrees for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown or you may pan-fry them on both sides in a bit of butter.
Note: fresh bread crumbs are made by removing the crusts from fresh bread and placing the bread in your food processor. Chop quickly and use the crumbs immediately. They are not to be dry.
