This ultimate crab cake recipe is easy to make and uses fresh, succulent crab meat along with flavorful spices and herbs. These crab cakes are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, and they are sure to impress your guests.


  • 1 lb fresh lump crab meat
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, egg, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, Old Bay seasoning, salt, and pepper.

  3. Pour the mayonnaise mixture over the crab meat mixture and gently fold together until just combined.

  4. Form the mixture into 8 patties, about 3 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick.

  6. Serve hot with lemon wedges.


  1. Can I use canned crab meat instead of fresh crab meat?

While you can use canned crab meat in this recipe, fresh crab meat will give you the best flavor and texture.

  1. Can I make these crab cakes ahead of time?

Yes, you can make the crab cakes ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours before cooking. This is a great way to save time when entertaining.
