Best Ever Crab Cakes










1 lb crab meat

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

1/4 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup red bell pepper, finely diced

1/4 cup celery, finely diced

1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

Salt and pepper to taste

Vegetable oil for frying


In a large bowl, combine the crab meat, breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, beaten egg, green onions, minced garlic, red bell pepper, and celery. Gently fold in the Old Bay seasoning and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Form the mixture into 8 equal-sized crab cakes and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to help them firm up.

Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the crab cakes for about 4-5 minutes per side until they are golden brown and cooked through.

Remove from the skillet and drain on paper towels to remove any excess oil.

Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce or a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
