Charleston Blue Crab Cakes

 

2 cups blue crab meat

1 egg

Crumbs from two slices of toasted bread

1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon melted butter

1/4 cup chopped onion, sauteed

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

 

In a large bowl, beat the egg lightly with a fork, then add all the remaining ingredients except the crab meat, mix to combine. Add the crab meat to the mixture and gently toss.

Heat olive oil in a frying pan.  Make crab cakes by pressing handfuls of the mix into thick patties (about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of mixture per cake).  Lightly brown each cake (about two minutes per side) in the pan.
