Maryland Crab Cakes
Homemade crab cakes are nothing like ones you might find in the freezer cabinet. Fresh crab is just amazing.

  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp English mustard
  • dash Worcestershire sauce
  • 4-6 tbsp dried breadcrumbs, approx. you may need a little more
  • 400g white crab meat

  • Place the egg, mayo, mustard and Worcestershire sauce into a bowl.
  • Add the brown crabmeat and breadcrumbs and mix well.
  • Next add the white crabmeat and onions and gently stir in, not to break up the meat to much.
  • Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Mould into small patties and pop in the fridge to set up best 1 hour.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan, remove the patties, dust in a little cornflour or arrowroot and gently fry on each side for 3-4 minutes.
  • Serve with a poached egg, optional.
