Your seafood and loving friends and family will kiss you! 


2 large eggs

2-1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise, 

1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup finely diced celery, from one stalk

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

1 tablespoon red bell pepper

1 pound lump crab meat 

1/2 cup panko

Vegetable or canola oil, for cooking


Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Combine the eggs, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, Old Bay, salt, celery, bell pepper, and parsley in a large bowl and mix well. Add the crab meat (be sure to check the meat for any hard and sharp cartilage) and panko; gently fold mixture together until just combined, being careful not to shred the crab meat. Shape into 6 crab cakes (about ½ cup each) and place on prepared baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat a large nonstick pan to medium heat and coat with canola oil. When oil is hot, place crab cakes in pan and cook until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes per side. Be careful as oil may splatter. Serve immediately.
