Recipe Ingredients for Lump Crab Cakes

1 lb lump crab meat
1 jalepeno pepper (seeded and diced)
1/2 small red pepper (finely diced)
2 tablespoons grey poupon mustard
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 dash of hot sauce
1/4 cup bread crumbs (the amount depends on the mixture-you have to feel the mixture, you don't want it too wet or dry)
3 tsp olive oil

Recipe Directions for Lump Crab Cakes

  1. Empty the crab into a large bowl, sort through, looking for pieces of shell to remove. Add jalapeno, red pepper, mustard, mayonnaise, crab seasoning and hot sauce. Don't be too rough (don't want to break up the crab lumps). Add enough bread crumbs to keep it together (but not too dry).

  2. If you are going to fry these, roll the finished cake in bread crumbs. If you are going to broil them skip the extra bread crumbs (optionally spray with olive oil lightly before broiling). Either fry in vegetable oil or broil until brown.
