When it comes to crabcakes, it’s sometimes tricky to get that perfect shape and texture. Chef de cuisine Gerald Yong from Fremantle Seafood Market uses three types of fresh crabmeat for these sweet, moist patties. This recipe makes 10-12.
Tip: Chill the patty mixture in the refrigerator a day in advance so the butter will harden slightly and bind the patty, holding its shape better when you fry it.
3 tbsp unsalted butter
½ cup finely chopped onion
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
½ tsp chopped garlic
1 cup Dungeness crabmeat
1 cup Alaskan King crabmeat
1 cup mud crabmeat
4 tbsp mayonnaise
1½ eggs, beaten
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp seafood seasoning
Sea salt, to taste
Melted butter, for frying
