    Outer Banks Crab Cakes

    List of Ingredients

    2 pounds lumb crab meat
    1 cup saltine crackers, crushed
    1 cup mayo
    1/2 tsp old bay seasoning
    2 caps full of worchestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1/2 tsp dry mustard
    2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions
    bread crumbs and extra paprika


    Combine crab meat and crackers and mix well.

    Mix together rest of ingredients except breadcrumbs.
    Mix enough of this to make very moist and so the crab meat and cracker crumb mixture holds together well. Don't skimp on this as it needs to be moist. Set aside any left over sauce.

    Mix bread crumbs with some paprika. One teaspoon per cup of breadcrumbs. This will help the crispness of the cakes. (Paprika will help crisp the frying process.. I didn't know this...)

    Make patties and lightly coat with bread crumb mixture.

    Saute in clarified butter until golden brown. (clarified butter won't burn easily and it allows the crab cakes to fry deliously even.

    Use the rest of the sauce mix as a dipping sauce for the crab cakes.
