1 pound fresh lump crabmeat, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 large egg, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning,
1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1 cup panko breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, 2 tablespoons olive oil
Pick through the crabmeat to remove any shells. In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, egg, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, Old Bay seasoning, salt, and black pepper.
Add the crabmeat to the bowl and gently fold together until well combined. Add the panko breadcrumbs to the bowl and gently mix until just combined.
Be careful not to over mix the mixture. Form the mixture into patties, using about 1/4 cup of the mixture for each patty.
Heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted and the skillet is hot, add the crab cakes to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes
on each side until golden brown and crispy. Serve the crab cakes with your favourite dipping sauce and enjoy, I hope you enjoy making and eating these delicious crab cakes!
