I love to get crab cakes when I eat out, but at $14.99 for two SMALL cakes, I have been skipping them a lot lately.  I tried the frozen kind you either bake in the oven or brown in a skillet, but they just didn't compare.  This recipe tastes just as good as any you will find in a restaurant and isn't that expensive to make (certainly not when you consider that this recipe makes 8 good sized crab cakes). 

Restaurant Quality Crab Cakes


1 8oz package crab meat (real or imitation, depending on preference and budget) flaked into small chunks
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup regular bread crumbs
1/4 cup mayo
1 tsp prepared Dijon mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire
1/2 tsp pepper
2 eggs, beaten lightly 

1.  Combine all ingredients well in a medium bowl.
2.  Heat a skillet that has been coated with cooking spray on medium heat.
3.  Once heated, add the cakes to the pan so that they are not touching.  Cook approximately 3-4 minutes on each side, until lightly browned.

Sauce for Dipping

This is a super easy and delicious sauce.  It's also really inexpensive to make.  Add 1 tsp to 1 Tbsp (depending on taste) buffalo style hot sauce to 1 cup ranch.  Stir.  DONE!


  1. WHOOOOO!! Looks like it could give Coney Island a run for its money..... :D
