How to Make Classic Maryland Crab Cakes

You don't have to be an east coast native to know how make classic Maryland crab cakes. This recipe will show you how easy it is to capture the flavor of the sea.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook bell pepper and green onions until softened, about 3 minutes.
Transfer vegetables to a large bowl. Add crab, 2 tablespoons low-carb bread crumbs, mayonnaise, parsley, and Old Bay seasoning. Mix with a fork until just combined, being careful not to overmix. Cover and refrigerate 20 minutes.
To assemble crab cakes: Sprinkle the inside of a 1/3-cup measuring cup (for solids) with a thin layer of breadcrumbs. Fill measure with crab mixture and sprinkle a layer of breadcrumbs on top. Pack lightly using hands or another measuring cup. Invert crab cake onto a plastic-wrap lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining breadcrumbs and crab mixture to make 8 crab cakes.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
To cook, heat 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Transfer crab cakes to skillet using a broad metal spatula. Cook 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown and crisp.
You can order Dixie Diner Carb Counters Bread Crumb Mix, made from low-carb bread, online or make your own by toasting low-carb bread. Old Bay seasoning is available in the spice and herb section of most well-stocked supermarkets.
