Baked Crab Cakes
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 25 min.
I found these to be very tasty! I used a 6-oz. can of crabmeat, well-drained. The meat was already flaked. I also used a can of clams, drained (6.5-oz.). I used 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs and instead of shredded carrot, I'd used 1/4 cup finely chopped red pepper, 1 egg, lightly beaten, 1 Tbsp. margarine, melted, 2 tsp. mayonnaise, 1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning, 1/4 tsp. EACH salt and pepper, 1/4 tsp. Dijon mustard for more zing, 3/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce. The first time I made the crab cakes, I hadn't chilled them, I did bake them on a foil-lined baking sheet with PAM cooking spray for 25 minutes. They came out nicely! I made 7 small patties, rather than 4 large patties! The 2nd time, since I had such fun making the crab cakes, I used a 5-oz. can, well-drained white albacore tuna in water. I'd used 1/4 cup GREEN pepper. NOTE: I omitted the parsley since I'd used Italian bread crumbs! The 2nd time around, I'd omitted the salt and pepper since the Old Bay seasoning was certainly spicy!
