Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes

jumbo lump crab cakes
Oh boy, eating healthy is really hard. I've been on a healthy food kick recently because I noticed there was way too much starch and bad carbs in our diet rather than healthy, high-protein foods. So, in an effort to be healthy, I made these crab cakes...yes, there is a little mayo (not too much), and a small amount of breadcrumbs. All in all, it was okay, although this is a type of dish that I'd rather eat a good seafood restaurant, like Peohe's.

INGREDIENTS (makes 8 crab cakes)

  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 pound fresh jumbo lump crab meat

Preheat the broiler.

In a large bowl, combine the egg, Old Bay seasoning, salt, pepper, Worcestershire, baking powder, mayonnaise, breadcrumbs and parsley. Then, gently fold in crabmeat (be careful not to break up the lumps). Shape into cakes and broil for 5 minutes.
