Jumbo Lump Crab Meat 1 lb (500g) of the best quality white lump crab meat, in Maryland, Blue Crabs are the favorite! Pick through the meat and make sure all shell and cartilage is gone but be careful not to break up the lumps.

White Sandwich Bread 6 slices of firm white bread, cut off the crusts, to make 1 cup of bread crumbs.

Mayonnaise ¼ cup of mayonnaise (Hellmans) or make your own for the best results

Fresh Egg 1 medium sized egg, beaten.

Worcestershire Sauce 1 teaspoon

Dijon Mustard 1 teaspoon

Ground Black Pepper Fresh ground pepper to taste

Sea Salt Add a pinch to taste


STEP ONE Grind the bread into fine crumbs using your food processor.

STEP TWO Place 1 cup of bread crumbs, black pepper, salt, mustard, beaten egg, mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce into a large mixing bowl. Gently fold together all the ingredients together until they are well combined

STEP THREE Add in the jumbo crab meat and gently fold together. Be very careful when mixing in the crab meat so that it doesn’t break up. If it gets too dry you can add a touch more mayonnaise.

STEP FOUR Gently scoop out the crab mixture to make 6 good sized portions (an ice cream scoop works best). Place on a plate and gently form each into a ¾ inch thick patty.

STEP FIVE Cover the crab cakes (foil or plastic clingwrap is okay) and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour, or as long as you want. This helps to keep the crab cakes in shape and stop them crumbling during cooking.

STEP SIX Gently fry the crab cakes in either light olive oil or butter in a skillet over medium heat. Fry for 5 to 6 minutes then turn crab cakes over and fry the other side until they are golden brown. Dont keep turning the cakes, once is enough.

STEP SEVEN Serve your crab cakes with your favorite sauce and garnishing.
