Crab Cakes

Seafood is quick, fast, healthy and delicious. Crabs are beautiful and have a really delicate flavour which I love. I find crab cakes are a really unique and different way to serve crab and the best part is that you dont even need to buy a crab and pick the meat, just use canned. Its a hit with both kids and adults, so be sure to make this next time your serving your guests seafood.

2 cans of good quality canned crab (I bought mine from Asian store)
1 teaspoon of Mayonaise
1 egg
1/2 cup of bread crumbs
pinch of salt and pepper
some paprika.
more bread crumbs for coating the crab cakes
4 tablespoons of oil for frying.

What to do:
In a bowl combine crab, mayonaise, egg, bread crumbs and spices. Mix well with wooden spoon. Form into round patties and pat in breadcrumbs. Heat some oil in a fry pan and cook the crab cakes on medium heat for 7 minutes on each side. serve immediatley.
Note: Next time I will add some chopped dill and maybe some chopped scallions.
