Ocean Tech Crab Cake

16 oz  All Natural Backfin or Special crabmeat
1 small egg, beaten
1 ½  tbs mayonnaise
½  tsp yellow mustard
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
½  tsp Old Bay
¼ cup crushed crackers
½ tsp chopped parsley
Drain and flake crabmeat. Remove any shell pieces. In a large bowl mix the crackers, egg and
remaining ingredients.  Add the crabmeat to the egg mixture and gently blend the ingredients
together. Form the cakes by hand to about 3 inches by 1 inch but do not pack the mixture too
firmly.   Cover loosely with wax paper and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before cooking.
To broil: Place under a preheated broiler turning once, about 4-5 minutes on each side or until
nicely browned.
To fry: Cakes can be fried in hot oil in a heavy skillet, about 4 minutes on each side or until golden
brown. Remove with a slotted utensil and place on paper towels to drain.
Option: Serve with cocktail or tartar sauce.
