Default Killer Crab Cakes

This is my lovely wife's crab cake recipe. IT IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD.
No, she didn't make me say that---the cakes are the best.
Here ya are---
C wrote this down this am for all you ifish crabbers---enjoy---

1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup " " onion
Saute in 1Tbl butter
Cool
Combine in a bowl and mix well
celery and onion mix
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1 or 2 Tbl mayo
1 egg
1/4 to 1/3 cup parmesan or romano grated cheese
3 Tbl dry or fresh parsley
1/2 tsp hot sauce or more to taste
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Gently fold the above mixture with 2 cups of crab meat. Fold gently so not to break up the crab pieces.
Shape into 6 to 8 patties

They can now be frozen or eaten fresh.
When ready to cook, coat with panco bread crumbs and fry until browned. Of course the patty is already cooked, so only need to cook until browned and warmed inside.

Damn--I'm really hungry now --gotta go.

I would assume that you would cook them after forming the patties - fry, or bake? Looks like a step is missing?

Mrs. Sea whipped up some of these when she got home from work - were going to have them for dinner later, but had to fry one up - oh my they are tasty and very meaty.

That sounds excellent.
I make almost the exact recipe using red bellpepper instead of celery, I think I'll add the celery now..Thanks.
I also add 1 tsp of dry mustard.

Thought I would bump this, since it is crab season and they are killer! I have made these cakes a few times now and the whole family loves them. Only change I ever make is use saltines crushed up instead of bread crumbs. Thanks for the recipe!

I tried it with leftover salmon instead of the crab, but swapped out the parsley for fresh dill and a bit of lemon juice. Very good option!

I made a batch last night. I changed up to Italian bread crumb.
and Italian parsley. More flavor. also used full 1 cup of cheese.
The batch made 12 or 13.
The guys at work have been on me for Tuna. I was looking for something new. I found your recipe, and said sure thing this will fit the bill...
My wife who does not like crab at all. I had to make her try a bite.
It was a mikey moment. She came back for another.then one more.
And the guys at work were calling me the crab cake king...
My Boss was begging for more...

This looks like a cross between a regular crab cake recipe and a Crab Imperial recipe from the King's Tavern in Williamsburg in the 1700's. Wife's bday dinner is coming up in a couple weeks, looks perfect.

Really, really close to Kyllo's in Lincoln City. Maybe better, since I had big lumps of crab.

I know... a few years old for this, but,

My sister in law lives in Alaska and every year they send us some "exotic" type of meat that we cant get in the lower 48. King crab, Caribou..what have you.

So this last year they sent us some king crab. We have tried a number of recipe for crab cakes and was never really satisfied. So Thanks to iFish I tried this recipe. The recipe as it stands is really good. Knowing that the King Crab is already salty, tasted it before hand, I did't add any more salt. I will probably add or delete some spiced depending on the crab that I am using but this one worked great. I will add that I baked them at 450 degrees for 10 minuted then flipped them for another 3-4 minuted. A nice glass of your favorite wine and you are set.

Looks really good!

If you want to freeze them, do you cook them first or just mix, form, then freeze?

Well I only ended up with 1 lb of meat after cleaning the legs. But if I were to freeze them I would probably cook them first.

I just made ~50 crab cakes from 5.5 pounds of lump crab meat that I shelled last weekend. I formed the cakes, but did not cook. I froze them on a couple of cutting boards, then vacuum sealed them, and put them back in the freezer. If you vacuum seal them without freezing first, your cakes will flatten out and run together.

When we’re ready to eat them, I’ll defrost A bag of them for a couple of hours in the fridge and then fry them over the stove.

I have really good luck doing a light fry, cool and then vac pack and freeze. I then use the air fryer to heat up and get that final crispy edge when eating. Works killer.
