Crab Cakes with Poached Egg

There are so many different crab cake recipes that it boggles my mind. It’s impossible to improve a good crab cake, and sometimes simple is better. This is a standard delicious crab cake that can be dressed any way you might feel like eating it. For the occasions when you need to go a little fancier, you may dress your crab cakes with the poached egg or cherry tomatoes with herbs and the dressing of your desire.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds crabmeat
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup finely diced celery
  • 1/2 finely diced onion
  • canola or olive oil for frying

Instructions

1

Working with your hands, blend the crabmeat and 1 cup of the panko in a large mixing bowl.

2

Add eggs, mayonnaise, celery, and onion, and mix with your hands until well blended.

3

The mixture should be quite moist, but not runny.

4

Form patties about the size of hockey pucks, adding more panko if needed to obtain the desired consistency.

5

Press the patties into the remaining panko, coating both sides, and place them on waxed paper.

6

The patties may be refrigerated at this point for up to 1 day.

7

Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

8

Place the patties in the hot skillet in batches, being careful not to crowd the pan.

9

Cook until crisp and brown on both sides, turning once.

10

Remove from the pan and keep hot on a baking sheet in 200F oven until serving.
