These are the vegetarian crab cakes. They taste just like you made them with crab. Absolutely delicious!



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
  • 2 eggs
  • 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.

I would like to try my hand at making crabcakes. Anyone have a quick, easy and tasty recipe? Also, what do you serve with crabcakes to make a meal?

I read this somewhere recently and tried it; it's good! Mix together 2 eggs, 2 cans (about 6 oz. each) of flaked crab and a box of stuffing mix prepared. Form into patties and fry in butter or oil

This is a wonderful recipe and I use it all the time as we have access to fresh crabmeat. 1/2 cup mayo, 1 Tablespoon brown mustard, 1/2 beaten egg (1 1/2 Tablespoon), and 1 lb. lump crabmeat. Oil a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 400. Whisk together mayo, mustard & egg. Fold in crabmeat until just combined. Gently form mix into 4 - 1" thick cakes and transfer to baking sheet. Bake in middle of oven 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.


These are good on hamburger buns served with peas or coleslaw. Pineapple as a fruit accompainment and cake for dessert.

Look in your grocery store for OLD BAY seasoning. The recipe should be on the back of the can. You can serve cole slaw and you can also make your crabcakes and serve them on a roll with tartar sauce.
You don't really have to use crab to make your cakes. I've boiled fresh Rock and made fishcakes instead. Yum Yum.
Ester's recipe sounds pretty good too. I think I'll give it a try.

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.

Use canned crab just like you would fresh.

Fresh is always tastier than canned but crab is crab ;-) Go to this link and peruse recipes from the best known chefs and choose one or two that have flavorings that sound good to you. Whether a recipe calls for a half a pound or a full pound of crab you can figure out the amount of cans of crab needed by remembering there are 16 ounces in a pound.


If a recipe calls for a pound and you don't want to make that many crab cakes just reduce the entire recipe ingredient amounts evenly according to just how many you want to make.

PS - My favorite recipe choice from the link I just posted would be this one with or without the dill sauce ;-)

Also, is a good place to look. I found my fave cole slaw (besides my beloved Grams', of course) there (from KFC). Peace.
