Whether you want to wow your friends without the hassle, or simply need a last minute meal that is faster and tastier than ordering take-out, this melt-in-your-mouth recipe is sure to hit the spot every time.
1 egg, beaten
3 Tbs (45 mL) mayonnaise
4 tsp (20 mL) fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp tarragon
1 Tbs green onion, diced
226 g crab meat, lump meat preferred
½ cup panko crumbs
To taste salt and pepper
Olive oil, for frying
- Preheat oven to 325º F.
- Whisk egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice, red pepper, tarragon and scallions together in a bowl.
- Gently fold in crab meat (try not to break it up too much). Fold in panko crumbs, and season with salt and pepper.
- Form into patties. Cook patties in a frying pan on medium-high heat with olive oil until brown on both sides. Finish cooking in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes, or until warm inside. Slide on a bun of your choice, and serve!
*Try swapping in some tasty add-ins like diced jalapenos, dill pickle, avocado chunks or sundried tomatoes.
