Broiled Maryland Crabcakes with Creamy Herb Sauce
1 large egg
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon brown mustard
1 Tablespoon all purpose flour
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound lump crabmeat
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 small shallot, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
Creamy Herb Sauce (recipe follows)
Beat egg, mayonnaise, mustard, flour, seafood seasoning, salt and pepper until well blended.
Stir in crabmeat, parsley, shallots and garlic until crab is coated with mayonnaise mixture.
Preheat toaster oven on broil.
Place 1/4 cup crab mixture on broiler pan; lightly press down. Repeat with remaining mixture. (these crabcakes are delicate and don’t have much filler)
Broil crabcakes 8 minutes, turning once.
Serve with Creamy Herb Sauce.
This is a good appetizer, but can be eaten as an open faced sandwich or even just a hot dish!
