  • Mix together everything except the crab, breadcrumbs, and oil in a medium size bowl. Mix together until thoroughly blended, then stir in the crabmeat and half of the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a fry pan over medium heat. There should be about 1/2 inch of oil in the bottom of the fry pan.
  • Using about 1/2 cup of the mixture make flat patties, then pat in remaining bread crumbs.
  • When oil is hot, fry until each side is nice and lightly browned. Remove from pan onto a plate lined with paper towels to catch excess grease.
  • Serve with tartar sauce or spicy remoulade sauce.
