Tips For Forming Crab Cakes:

You can use a lid from a peanut butter jar to make perfect round crab cakes. Just spray the lid to let the mixture release easily. Or, you can use an ice cream scoop to make crab cakes! Just scoop into mixture and put onto cooking area and press gently on top to form.

Always chill your crab cake mixture before baking or frying your cakes.
This helps blend the flavors to meld and helps to hold the mixture together making them easier to handle and mold to desired shape. It also plays a big role in the cooking process. It allows the outside of the crab cakes to get crispy, thus keeping the moisture inside the crab cake.
