Recipe by: Chef John V.
Serving size: 12 - 3-ounce cakes
Preparation time: about 45 minutes


1 pound lump crabmeat or other such as New England Jonah crabmeat
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning (optional)
1 pinch ground red pepper
1 pinch thyme
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon parsley - chopped
1 egg - beaten
1 cup mayonnaise
3 cups fresh made breadcrumbs, remove crusts before chopping
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 ounces clarified butter


Pick out shell fragments from the crabmeat if you see any. Mix mustard, ground red pepper, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, parsley and eggs with mayonnaise; fold in crabmeat. Add baking powder to the breadcrumbs and mix until well blended, then add to the crabmeat and blend well. Using a 3 ounce measure, scoop the mixture, then form into cakes about 3/4 of an inch thick and 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Saute in a skillet over medium heat in clarified butter until golden brown on both sides and heated through. If desired, serve with coleslaw, corn relish, tartar sauce or mustard mayonnaise.

Freeze for up to 6 months!
