My mom is one of the best cooks I know, and her crab cakes are hands down the yummiest I have ever had. They are perfectly spicy and so delicious!
We are in Philly for the week, so last night we made them with mashed potatoes and it was a perfect almost-fall dinner. I also love them with asparagus or a baked potato. Here is the recipe:
1 tbsp parsley
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 cup melted butter
1 and a 1/2 slices bermuda onion (red onion)
1 tbsp mayo
1/2 cup crushed saltine crackers
1 lb crab meat (jumbo lump)
Set oven to broil. Combine all of the above ingredients (except for the crackers and the crab meat) in a blender and blend until fully mixed.
Place in a large bowl, add crackers and crab meat and gently combine with your hands. Form into palm-sized cakes (or smaller for appetizers, which my mom makes for Thanksgiving – the best) and place on an un-greased baking sheet in the center of the oven for approximately 10 minutes. Check often and remove when the tops are getting golden brown.
