Hi, I'm Chef Bailey, a private chef with, and I'm standing today in one of my favorite restaurants, Freda's Caribbean and Soul Cuisine. Today I'll be making blue lump crab cakes. First, we start with about 2 pounds of lump crab, picked through. You wanna season that with some salt, a little black pepper, some garlic powder, oregano, as well as old bay seasoning, we have some minced green onions, a little mayonnaise. Now mayonnaise is gonna make it a little moist. If your crab meat is already moist, you wanna use some bread crumbs to dry it out a little bit. So you wanna just mix that all up. Put a little bread crumbs in there since it's a little moist. You also wanna add one beaten egg. Stir that up. Once again, add a little bit more bread crumbs if you notice it's too moist. Okay, you just continue to mix that till it gets dried out a little bit more. And then what you're gonna do is you're gonna form a patty with these. Take some flour, and you're gonna lay it so, and you're gonna dredge your crab cakes in these, in the flour. You wanna form a ball like so. This is why it's important to be dry so that it can really stick. And then you're just gonna lightly fry these in oil. Two minutes per side. That's your crab cake there. On each side, in about a little bit of vegetable oil. And I have a couple made right here, so that you know what they kind of look like when they're all done. These are your crab cakes. They make for great appetizers, and sometimes you can add different seasonings like curry, just to spice them up a little bit. But those are your lump crab cakes.
