Crab Cakes
Makes 15 – 18 cakes

• 1lb Dungeness Crab—preferably fresh but frozen is OK. Whatever you do, don’t used canned
• ¼ cup Fresh Breadcrumbs (a thick slice of white bread in a food processor works)
• ¼ cup Mayonnaise
• 1 bunch Green Onions chopped fine
• 1 egg
• Some Panko (Japanese Dried Breadcrumbs)
• 2-3 Tablespoons Butter

Squeeze Crab in your hands or in cheesecloth and wring all the water out of it. The trick is get the crab as dry as possible.
Place in Bowl.
Add Fresh Breadcrumbs, Mayo, Green Onions, and Egg. Mix lightly—you don’t want to break up the crab too much but you want everything to be mixed.
Form into balls—sort of between a golf ball and a billiard ball. Flatten slightly and press into Panko.
Place in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes, preferably ½ hour.
Heat non-stick pan under medium high heat, add butter, when butter stops foaming, add cakes.
Cook in batches for 5-6 minutes on one side and flip. Cook 4-5 minutes on other side. Keep warm in oven while you finish cooking. Use more butter if necessary.
You can also bake them off in the oven. 375 for 15 minutes or so.
Serve plain, with a little lemon, or some kind of sauce (tartar, salsa, or your choice)
