Cajun Crab Burgers-Video & Recipe

And as promised, here is the recipe and video from last night! Enjoy!

  • 1 pound fresh Jonah Crab Meat
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (For really Hot Crab Burgers, add 1/2 tsp)
  • 1 1/2 cups fine dry bread crumbs, divided
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • Accompaniments: Remoulade or Campaign Mustard Sauce

Recipe Directions
Stir together crab meat, mayonnaise, scallions, egg, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, cayenne, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 3/4 cup bread crumbs in a bowl until just combined. Form into 4 (1-inch-thick) patties (3 1/2 inches in diameter; patties will be soft but will firm up when fried). Spread remaining cup bread crumbs on a plate, then dredge patties in crumbs, knocking off excess, and transfer to a platter. Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat until it shimmers, then fry patties, turning over once, until golden, 5 to 6 minutes total. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Assemble burgers with buns and accompaniments.
