How To Make Crab Cakes with Quick Tartar Sauce
Like the Maryland classic, these crab cakes are seasoned with Old Bay seasoning, parsley, and mustard then served with homemade tartar sauce.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean-up.
Combine the eggs, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, Old Bay, salt, celery, and parsley in a large bowl and mix well. Add the crab meat (be sure to check the meat for any hard and sharp cartilage) and panko.
Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the mixture together until just combined, being careful not to shred the crab meat. Shape into 6 cakes (each about ½ cup) and place on the prepared baking sheet.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. This helps them set.
Preheat a large nonstick pan to medium heat and coat with canola oil. When the oil is hot, place the crab cakes in the pan and cook until golden brown. This will take about 3 to 5 minutes per side.
Serve immediately with tartar sauce or a squeeze of lemon.
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
