  Re: (...)
Those crabs are just swimming in out here -

Any one want to share a Crab Cake Recipe with me?

Looked on the Search section couldn't find any crab cakes

Thanks Marye
Everything will be all right in the end. So if it is not right, then it's not yet the end.

Marye, I am in search of the same thing. Jean has been working on this, too. I haven't mastered it yet. I can do a good one, but not a GREAT one. Good luck!
Keep your mind wide open.

We really enjoy these crab cakes. It's a recipe from Rebecca Rather. The tomatillo salsa works really well to enhance the flavors.

Marye, I have 4 or 5 favorites that I rotate between - one is from Windows on the World restaurant from B.A. a hundred years ago ( ) that is one here and some that I've developed over the years. I'll post some in a minute.

Here's two of my fvorites, Marye and I brought up an old thread that Denise started that has lots of info in it. Isn't this a nice time of the year up here????????

Dungeness Crab Cakes - Windsor '06 Fundraiser Recipe

1 lbs crab meat -- preferably Dungeness
1/2 pound butter - unsalted, melted and cooled just a little
chopped parsley
chopped chives
2 hard-cooked egg -- finely chopped
salt, black pepper
1 c panko
1 c flour
2 eggs, beaten with a little water
1 1/2 c more panko (for breading)*
Peanut or canola oil, as needed for frying

Put the crabmeat in a large bowl and add the butter, parsley, chives, eggs, salt & pepper.

Mix together till combined. Add just enough panko make a coherent mixture.

Divide the mixture into patties - for regular service make into 2 3/4" wide by 1/2" thick.
Chill the patties covered for 30 min

When ready to fry cakes: have three shallow containers ready
one - flour
one - egg wash
one - panko

Dredge the patties on all sides in the flour, then dip in egg wash, drop in panko and coat evenly. Shake off excess.

Fill pot with at least 2" of oil and heat to 350 F.
Add as many cakes as will comfortably fit and fry, turning a few times with a slotted spoon, till golden brown on all sides and hot thru, about 6 min. cooking time.

Remove cakes and continue with the rest. Drain cooked cakes on paper towels an keep warm till service.

*I mixed 1/2 panko and 1/2 chopped, roasted pecans for the breading.

Alternative: brown the crab cakes quickly, set aside (chilled), then finish off in a 375 F. oven.

For the Fundraiser dinner I made miniature cakes for my Amuse-Bouche

For what it's worth, I've tried both of these and had the best luck with the first one. I think I made them ahead and refrigerated them for a few hours. I think this helped them stay together.
Keep your mind wide open.

The Windows recipe has been one of my favorites for years, in fact Jean had to find it for me when I lost that issue of BA!!

Wonder if the Windows Crab Cakes are equally likely to give you a virus.
If blueberry muffins have blueberries in them, what do vegan muffins have?
