  • 500 grams crab meat
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1/2 white onion medium size
  • 1/2 tsp natural sea salt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp finely chopped dill
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • Cooking oil as needed
  • 1 egg wash


  • Mix all ingredients together. Let this mixture rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before making the patties.
  • Scoop tablespoons full of mixture and round them out to make patties, cover
  • Dunk into egg wash, then on panko bread crumbs, then on to the hot cooking oil, about 1 minute on each side, until they are golden brown.


  • Drain the crab cakes on paper towels to remove some of the cooking oil.
  • You can prepare the mixture and form the patties up to one day in advance. Then just fry them before serving.    
  • You can make them ahead and freeze or keep them in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Just warm them up when you need them in a pre-heated oven at 170°C (375°F) for 15 minutes
