crazy crab cakes...what a mess!!!

I had some difficulty keeping them from falling apart, but the ones that stuck together were delicious. Here's what I did:

1. emptied 2 cans of crab meat into bowl
2. mixed in 1tbs mayo, 1 tbs Dijon mustard, fresh herbs (lots of dill and parsley), 1 egg, some breadcrumbs and lemon juice
3. mixed in red peppers and spinach (lightly sauteed first) and corn (cut straight off a boiled cob)
4. made little patties by hand and dipped each one into egg, breadcrumbs, and repeat again.
5. placed into hot pan with olive oil, pressing them down a little with the spatula to flatten
6. lightly frying until crunchy and golden brown.  (I guess you can bake them too!!!)

  1. Looks so bright and colorful! Maybe they needed more egg & breadcrumbs to stay together? Im sure they still tasted great!
