Crab cakes

I decided to do another leisurely dive at Mukilteo yesterday and returned with even more crab. Since I’ve been landing so much lately, I’ve had the chance to perfect my crab cake recipe, which I’ve decided to share with you today. This one is simple, has the perfect consistency, and holds together fairly well. They’re also Matt tested and approved. Enjoy!


  • 1 lb fresh crab meat
  • 20 saltine crackers, finely crushed
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbs butter

Combine crackers, mayo, pepper, salt, and parsley. Fold in crab meat. Melt butter in a large skillet. Form mixture into patties and sauté in butter until golden brown on each side. Serve with tarter sauce.
