Crab Cakes

Another over zealous trip to Costco contributed to this recipe.  One person can only eat so much chunks of imitation crab meat and I really enjoy ordering crab cakes when I'm out to dinner, but I've always felt that if I would try to make them they would fall apart.  So what better way to see if that would happen, than to actually make them. 

¾ cup cracker crumbs
¾ cup bread crumbs or panko
½ pound crab meat
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp water ¼ tsp salt
2 egg whites

Dipping sauce:
1 tbsp of hot sauce
1 tbsp Dijon-style mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup nonfat mayonnaise
1 tbsp minced green onions

Coarsely chop the crab meat.
Combine all the dry ingredients first and then add in the wet ones.
Blend well and then flake in the crab meat.
Form into 6 crab cakes, place in plate and cover with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for an hour, then take out and let sit for 5 minutes.
Lightly oil a skillet and place on medium heat.
Add crab cakes and fry for 6 minutes on each side.
Serve with a dollop of dressing.

These were a huge success and I would definitely make them again!
Stay hungry my friend.
