Crab Cakes

I love seafood so crab cakes is one of my favorite dishes. I love the way they make it at the Great American Chain Restaurants and thought it was a difficult dish to make. However A's husband made this at a party earlier year and they were delicious, not that difficult either!


Extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, finely minced
4 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 1/2 pounds jumbo lump crabmeat
1 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs (I used ritz crackers instead)
2 tablespoons mayonnaise, plus more if needed
1 large egg white
1/2 lime, juiced
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro leaves, plus whole leaves, for garnish
freshly cracked black pepper

You'll need to prepare the crabcakes first and put them in the fridge so they can firm up before you can fry them.

Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until the onion gets kind of caramelized. Dump that into a bowl and fold in the crabmeat, bread crumbs, mayonnaise, egg white, lime juice, and cilantro, mixing just until well blended. Season with salt and pepper. Shape the mixture into crab cakes, cover them up and then place them in the refrigerator to chill.

To serve, heat a olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the crab cakes and cook for about 4 minutes each side until nice and crisp.
