“Coastal Cooking with John Shields, 2004. This is a nice working recipe for crab cake not as fancy as the previous one but it has all the instructions and serves the same amount of people. If you wish the other feel free to google because others have placed it on the net.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Now gently fold in the breadcrumbs and the egg mixture being careful not to break lumps thenshape into 12 slightly flattened balls, chilling them for at least an hour.
  3. Fry by pouring oil into the skillet to a depth of about 1 1/2 inches. Heat the oil to 370° and fry the crab cakes, a couple at a time, until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spatula to paper towels to drain.
  4. To broil:
