I woulda swore somebody on here was looking for a crab cake recipe. If so here are two which sorta compliment and contradict each other. If not go back to sleep:)

Though I live in Maine, I grew up (despite what the wife says) in Maryland and watched my mother, my mother-in-law, and the wife make a few thousand crab cakes. bbqlover's recipe looks good except a Marylander would try not to use any crumbs at all. I've always seen onions and bells (usually red) but nothing else except celery here and there. Old Bay is the most common seasoning around the Chesapeake. They can be broiled if you prefer to frying.

Get a pound of lump crab meat, one egg, a little panko bread crumbs, a little paprika. mix lightly, form, fry in half butter, half olive oil....you can add bell pepper, onion and other veggies if you want but I wouldn't....less is best...let them taste the crab...

* 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
* 1 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning TM
* salt to taste
* ground black pepper to taste
* 1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs) or regular dry bread crumbs
