The Worlds Best Recipe For Crab Cakes

I love Crab and I think Blue Crabs are the best of all. Especially those caught in the low country of South Carolina. I quite often drive four hours down to a seafood shop on Folly Beach South Carolina for a bushel or two of blue crabs and bring them back for a feast. And I almost always save some of the delicious crab meat for crab cakes.

In the summer I and my family often travel down to Charleston South Carolina to catch our own crabs in one of the Charleston County parks and as each new child comes along and gets to age two or three we teach them how to bait up the crab net and let it down into the water and every once in a while you pull it up and they catch their first crab and they never forget.

And while you can purchase your crab in a can in the seafood section of your supermarket there is nothing like catching the blue crabs yourself and steaming them and eating them on a newspaper covered table.

The Worlds Best Recipe For Crab Cakes

And now lets get back to why were here and that is to answer the question. What is the best recipe for crab cakes. Well I'll tell you if you scroll on down you'll find the best recipe for crab cakes in the world. A recipe that I have enjoyed making for years and I'm now going to share with the world.

And everyone who has ever tasted these crab cakes say that these are truly the best crab cakes in the world. You can use a can of crab from your seafood deli section to make these crab cakes with just be sure to go through your crab and make sure there are no bits of shell in your crab cakes.

For Your Crab Cakes You Will Need.

1. Two Cups White Bread Cubes.

2. Two Cups Mayonnaise.

3. Four Large Eggs.

4. Four Tablespoons Fresh Chopped Parsley.

5. Two Tablespoons Fresh Chopped Chives.

6. One Teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper.

7. Juice Of One Lemon.

8. Zest Of One Lemon.

9. One Teaspoon Ground Sea Salt.

10. One Teaspoon Black Pepper.

11. Two Pounds Of Crab Meat.

12. One Tablespoon Old Bay Crab Seasoning.

13. One Stick Of Real Butter.

A Few Words About Your Bread Crumbs

If you make your own bread crumbs for these you will want to use white bread and do not use the crust. Cut it up into small cubes and add the bread crumbs to a baking pan that you have coated with butter. Bake your bread crumbs at 200 degrees until they are dry and crunchy and you have two level cups of bread crumbs.

Watch Out For Bits Of Crab Shell.

Now you want to pour your crab meat out into a large bowl and go through it carefully to make sure that you don't have any pieces of crab shell in your crab meat.

Now you want to combine ingredients 1-11 in a large bowl. Be sure to beat your eggs very well together before you pour the eggs into the bowl. Gently mix everything up together and now you want to spray a large baking pan with vegetable cooking spray.

Form all your crab into small 3 inch across cakes and place each on the baking pan. Now you want to melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl and add the old bay crab seasoning to it and stir well. Use a kitchen brush to paint the tops of your crab cakes with the butter / crab seasoning mixture. Now place your crab cakes in a 425 degree preheated oven. You will want to bake them for 12-15 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees and you will have perfect crab cakes.

Yes you have now cooked and prepared what I consider to be the worlds best recipe for crab cakes. You may like them served with shrimp sauce available in most seafood deli sections or cocktail sauce or chilled tartar sauce. Serve them with wedges of lemon both as a garnish and so people can squeeze on more lemon if they wish.

And in case you have never met a blue crab here is one for you.

      Yes Chesapeake Bay is great for blue crabs however there is just something about the low country of South Carolina that adds a touch of mystery to the blue crabs. And I have spent all my life catching delicious blue crabs around Charleston South Carolina.

      Check out those fish shacks along the Chesapeake Bay and the nearin islands, where you can crack a crab - by the dozen - and wash it down with a great tasting local beer. Fries and Cole Slaw are a matter of choice. Allow two hours if you've got a good talking crowd. David Russell
