Total time:  Approximately 40 minutes.

1 lb crab meat
2 tsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp yellow mustard
2 Tbsp Old Bay seasoning (this is a Maryland seafood seasoning, but can be found at most grocery stores)
2 pieces white bread (break into small pieces)
1 tsp salt (or less)
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup mayo
1 med onion minced
1 sm green pepper minced
1 celery stalk chopped
1 tsp hot pepper sauce
1 tsp Worchestershire sauce
1 Tbsp parsley flakes
1 egg

Mix it all up shape into patties. (If patties feel too wet add a few more bread crumbs). Pan fry or broil until golden brown on each side (fried in olive oil is best).

I finally did this with some changes. Firstly, I’m still on a budget and I used salmon and a lobster tail I had frozen from Mother’s Day. Otherwise, I stuck pretty close to the recipe with brown mustard instead of yellow, Ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs, and a hearty slice of JB’s homemade bread instead of the white bread.   I also deep-fried them because we were doing deep-fried-finger-food night.  I could say they were good, and you’d say “OK”, but what about if I said “My kid ate it and loved it!”, then I know you’d believe me.

    Next time I make these I’ll have to take a picture and send it to entice you into giving them a try 😉

  • I would LOVE a picture!! 🙂 I mostly need to convince myself I can afford to buy crab, so I can try them!
