Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 25 minutes



  • 1 pound crab meat
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, for frying


  1. In a large bowl, combine the crab meat, mayonnaise, breadcrumbs, green onions, red bell pepper, parsley, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, Old Bay seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and black pepper. Mix until well combined.

  2. Shape the mixture into 8 crab cakes, about 1/2 inch thick.

  3. Place the panko breadcrumbs in a shallow dish and coat the crab cakes with the breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere.

  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the crab cakes until golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes per side.

  6. Serve the crab cakes hot with tartar sauce or a squeeze of lemon juice, if desired.
