Ingredients

CRAB CAKES

  • 8 oz Fresh Lump Crab Meat
  • 1 Large Egg
  • ⅓ Cup Bread Crumbs
  • 3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 2 Teaspoons Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • ½ Teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • ½ Teaspoon Fresh Lemon Juice
  • ¼ Teaspoon Fine Sea Salt
  • 4-8 Teaspoons Salted Butter, divided

TARTAR SAUCE

  • ⅓ Cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 Teaspoons Sweet Relish
  • ¼ Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • ¼ Teaspoon Lemon Juice

  • 1)

    In a large bowl, add 1 Large Egg, 3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise, 2 Teaspoons chopped Fresh Parsley, 1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard, ½ Teaspoon Old Bay seasoning. ½ Teaspoon Fresh Lemon Juice, ¼ Teaspoon Fine Sea Salt and whisk very well to combine. Stir in ⅓ Cup Bread Crumbs and add the 8oz of Fresh Lump Crab Meat last, fold the crab in gently with a spatula.

  • 2)

    Line the baking tray or basket with parchment paper. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions (about ½ Cup each) and form them into patties or dome shaped, don’t compress them too much, just enough so they hold their shape and place onto the baking tray. Place a 1-2 Teaspoon tab of Salted Butter on top of each Crab Cake. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes

  • 3)

    Make the easy Tartar Sauce, by combining ⅓ Cup Mayonnaise, 2 Teaspoons Sweet Relish, ¼ Teaspoon Dijon Mustard, ¼ Teaspoon Lemon Juice in a small bowl and set aside.

  • 4)

    Pre-heat the air fryer to 400°F. Air fry for 8-9 minutes (no need to flip), they should look lightly golden – avoid over cooking or they’ll turn tough. Serve with lemon wedges and tartar sauce. Enjoy!
