Mix together all ingredients, except crab and oil or butter. Add crab meat now, toss gently and form into patties. Makes about 6 crab cakes, can be deep-fried in oil, sauteed in butter or broiled until brown. Enjoy :)

I use Zatarains crab cake mix and a package of imitation crab meat when I make crab cakes. I just use the basic recipe on the box. The imitation crab meat substitutes really well for real crab and the crab cakes taste really good.
These are the vegetarian crab cakes. They taste just like you made them with crab. Absolutely delicious!
2 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine,melted
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup minced onions
1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning (may add more)
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil (for frying)
In a large bowl, combine zucchini, egg, butter or margarine. Stir in seasoned bread crumbs, minced onion, and seasonings. Mix well. Shape into patties. Dredge in flour. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium high heat until hot. Fry patties until golden brown on both sides.
3 cans crabmeat, drained, flaked and cartilage removed
1 cup cubed bread
3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
3 Tbsp. half and half cream
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp. seafood seasoning
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
In a large bowl, combine crab and bread cubes. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, mayonnaise, cream, lemon juice, butter, seafood seasoning, Worcestershire sauce and salt. Add to crab mixture and mix gently (mixture will be moist). Place bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Drop crab mixture by 1/3 cupfuls into crumbs; shape each into a 3/4 inch thick patty. Carefully turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. In a large skillet, cook crab cakes in oil for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy.

You can mix your crabmeat (real or imitation) or other flaky white cooked fish with instant mashed potatoes and add seasonings you like to your own taste (seasoned salt, pepper, whatever you like). Shape into patties, coat with bread crumbs & fry in olive oil until golden brown. I like serving with coleslaw.
