    Here's my favorite crab cake recipe:

    * Exported from MasterCook *

    Crab Cakes

    2 slices bread -- crusts removed
    1 pound crab meat
    1 teaspoon Old Bay Seafood seasoning
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon mayonnaise
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 tablespoon green bell pepper -- chopped fine
    1 egg -- beaten

    Break bread in small pieces. Mix all ingredients, shape into 8 small cakes.
    (I then like to cover them lightly with breadcrumbs and place in the
    refrigerator for 30 minutes or so to firm up.)

    Fry quickly in butter/oil mixture until golden brown on one side. Turn
    carefully with two spatulas so the cakes don't break apart and fry until
    golden brown on the other side. They cook quickly.

    I have loads of other recipes using crabmeat - soup, a favorite casserole,
    etc., if you're interested.
