Aunt Ruth’s Crab Cakes

Sharing is caring!

Down home crab cakes are heavy on the crab, light on the filler.

Ingredients:

  • 16 saltine crackers, finely crushed
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 pound flaked cooked crabmeat
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®) (Optional)
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup vegetable oil for frying

Directions:

Stir the cracker crumbs and water together in a mixing bowl. Let stand 1 minute to soften the crackers. Add the crabmeat, egg, mustard, and mayonnaise. Season with Worcestershire sauce, seafood seasoning, salt, and black pepper; stir until evenly mixed.

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Form the crab mixture into patties 3/4-inch thick. Cook in the hot oil until golden brown on each side and hot in the center, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.
