Well now its close to cooking time and they are still falling apart.
Is there some secret to getting them to stay together? Anyone have any tips for me..
I really don't want to remix as the I'd like to handle them as less as possible so the crab does not get to mushed up..
Here's the recipe..
1/3 cup mayo
2 1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. crushed hot pepper flakes
1 tsp. course ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. old bay
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cups breadcrumbs (I used panko crumbs)
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 lb. crabmeat
Mix together first 9 ingredients.
Fold in breadcrumbs and parsley.
Fold in crab meat.
Form into 4-6 patties.
Lightly coat patties in flour on both sides.
Deep-fry crab cakes in 350 degree oil until brown.
I am going to pan fry, not deep fry. I have not added the flour for coating as yet..
Will the flour work to hold the cakes together? I just can't see that working myself..
Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
