Zesty Garlic Crab Cakes Traditional

  • 12 oz crab meat
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Zesty Garlic Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp parsley fresh, chopped
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs I used Panko
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil for frying



  1. Add all the ingredients (except the olive oil) to a bowl and gently mix it all together.
  2. Form the crab mixture into patties, depending on how big you want the patties, I got 10 patties out of my mixture.
  3. In a skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Place the patties in the skillet, a few at a time, I did 5 at a time, and cook until golden brown, about 5 min per side. Gently flip them over and cook for another 5 minutes until golden brown. Repeat with remaining patties.
  4. Serve with your favorite side dish.
