Crab Cakes

I recently threw a baby shower for a dear friend (post coming soon…) and one of our family friends made crab cakes for the event. They were the best I have ever eaten and so I begged her to share the recipe. She promised that they were “beyond easy” to make and so I tested the recipe last night to be sure.  She was right. They aresuper easy and a great “go-to” appetizer idea.


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp dry ground mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 lb. lump crabmeat
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbs unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  1.  1. In a medium bowl, combine the mayo, onion, eggs,  Worcestershire, dry mustard, salt, Old Bay seasoning and cayenne. Fold in crabmeat and 1/4 cup Panko. Shape the mixture into 16 cakes about 1 inch thick. Coat the crab cakes with the remaining Panko crumbs and transfer to a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
