Real lump crab meat gets expensive. But, sometimes you just need to enjoy the taste, and that’s where this imitation crab meat comes in handy. We’re making homemade crab cakes that only takes a few extra ingredients and are really easy to make.
1/2 cup Ritz Cracker crumbs
1/4 cup Duke’s Mayonnaise
1 Egg, large, beaten
1/2 Onion, small, minced
1 pound Imitation Crab Meat, pulled into small pieces.
4 Tablespoons Butter
Place Ritz cracker crumbs in a large mixing bowl.
Add the mayonnaise.
Add the slightly beaten egg.
Add the onion.
Mix ingredients well.
Add the imitation crab meat. Stir until combined
Shape mixture into four patties.
Roll patties in bread crumbs.
Place a skillet over Medium heat on stove top.
Add butter. Let melt.
Gently place patties In the butter. Fry until brown, turning as needed.
Remove to paper towels to let drain when lightly browned on both sides.
These will cook a little quicker if you fry them on both sides in the skillet. I finished mine off in the oven, so it took a bit longer.
