Gentle mixing is the secret to these succulent crab cakes. Use only enough crackers to hold the mixture together. Old Bay seasoning, a favored Chesapeake crab boil seasoning, is available on the supermarket spice aisle.

How to Make It

Step 1

Drain crabmeat, removing any bits of shell.

Step 2

Combine crushed crackers and next 7 ingredients; gently fold crabmeat into mixture. Shape into 8 thin patties.

Step 3

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add crab cakes; cook, in batches, 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Garnish, if desired. Serve crab cakes with Caper Sauce.
