We just wish Maryland blue crabs were available here but, since they aren’t we settled for these crab cakes for dinner last night.
Obviously fresh crab meat would be the best but, canned crab meat is easy to find here, as I am sure it probably is everywhere and it works fine for these crab cakes.
These crab cakes are made of simple ingredients: onion, garlic, paprika, Dijon mustard and an egg and bread crumbs to hold them together.
Just add enough bread crumbs to bring them together. Shape them into patties very gently, sauté them in a little oil for 5 or 6 minutes on each side until golden and you have a delicious meal ready to eat.
The crab cakes take very little time to mix together, just 30 seconds and use a light hand when bringing it all together! These are great crab cakes with lots of flavor and spice!
