Delicious Crab Cakes that are light on filler and served with homemade Tartar sauce.

Crab Cakes and Homemade Tartar Sauce


Tip: The lemon juice, zest and green onions and mustard are used in both the tartar sauce and the crab cakes so, it is a good idea to zest the lemons before you begin, squeeze the fresh lemon juice and chop the green onions.


Ingredients

6 Servings

For the Tartar Sauce

  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest

  • 1 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions

  • 1/2 tsp English Style dry mustard (I use Coleman's Mustard)

For the Crab Cakes

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs from firm white or French bread, divided (or Progresso Plain Bread crumbs)

  • 1 1/2 - 2 tsp Old Bay (depends on how much you like)

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions

  • 3/4 tsp English Style dry mustard

  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice

  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest

  • 1 lb lump crab meat, if you have to get Jumbo lump you will need to break up some of the larger pieces.

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil for sautéing

Directions


Tartar Sauce

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, green onions, dry mustard, lemon juice and zest. Refrigerate at least 10 minutes or until ready to serve.

Crab Cakes

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, beat the egg, then stir in 3/4 cup of the bread crumbs, Old Bay, crabmeat (drained), green onions, dry mustard, 1 Tbsp lemon juice and the zest.

  2. Place the remaining bread crumbs on a plate.

  3. Divide the crab cake mixture into approximately 1/2 cup amounts and shape into cakes. Should have about 8 crab cakes.

  4. Dip each cake into the bread crumbs to coat.

  5. Refrigerate the crab cakes for 30 minutes.

  6. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Place the crab cakes in the oil and cooke undisturbed, until brown on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Carefully turn with a spatula and cook about another 5 minutes until browned.

The crab cakes can be held in a 325 degree oven for 30 minutes before serving, if needed.


Serve with the homemade tartar sauce.


Enjoy!
