Crab Cakes

Interestingly enough, there is no shortage of seafood around Cefalu, no matter what the fishermen would have one believe.  Crabs are found in abundance there and this tasy treat is great dished up with a garden salad and fresh bread rolls.


2 1/2 cups crab meat

2 tbsp. reduced-fat mayonnaise

1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

Several drops hot pepper sauce

4 green onions, chopped

2 Tbsps. dry mustard

Salt and freshly ground pepper, or to taste

2 egg whites

1 cup cracker crumbs

Olive Oil


Flake the crab meat with a fork, picking out any shell or cartilage and then place the meat in a bowl.  Add the mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper, green onions, dry mustard, pepper and salt.  Blend in the egg whites. Shape into 4 cakes about 4 inches across. Place cracker crumbs on a plate and season with salt and pepper.  Roll crab cakes in crumbs, making sure both sides are coated.  Lightly coat a skillet with Olive Oil and heat on medium heat.  Add crab cakes and cook 5 minutes.  Turn and cook 5 more minutes.
