  • 1-teaspoon-Garlic-minced

  • 3/4 Cup-Mayonnaise
  • 1 Teaspoon-Creole Mustard
  • 1-Egg
  • 1/2-Cup Milk
  • Canola Oil-for frying
  • Lemon

Saute’ the "Cajun Trinity" in butter and olive oil until well done.

Add minced garlic, Italian seasoning, and Tony’s creole seasoning. Move to a mixing bowl and stir in 1 cup bread crumbs. Add mayo and creole mustard. Mix well.

Fold in crabmeat, blending well. Add more mayo if too dry. The mixture should be sticky enough to form patties.

Divide the mixture evenly to form 4-5 patties.

Place on a clean platter and chill at least 30 minutes to an hour.

Make an egg wash by whisking 1 egg and 1/2 cup milk in a small bowl. Add in a dash of lemon juice if you like.

Put the bread crumbs in another bowl.
In a deep skillet, pour in enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan.

Heat on medium heat.

Take the crab patties out of the refrigerator.

Dip each patty through the egg wash, then, dip through the bread crumbs coating the outside of the patty completely.

Place on a clean platter.

Carefully place the patties in the skillet and fry for 2-3 minutes. Flip each crab cake over and fry another 2-3 minutes. Until golden brown.

Remove the crab cakes onto several layers of paper towels to remove the excess oil.
