Crab Cake Recipe

this is my first trial to make crab cake.... i was inspired to try this simple dish during watcing the hit TV show TOP CHEF last year, i cudn't remember the name of this guy who made it to the final, but i am very sure there must be sumthing special about crab cake because this is his speciality...

but i was too lazy to give a try, because there's no way to get real crab here, is there is then the price will definitely gonna kill u... i only afford to buy the imitation of crab meat /crab stick but i was frankly being so sceptical bout how it would taste.... so i just cancel this menu from my list...

until one day when i was having my lunch at StarLite Diner near the Ramstor Capitoly, i found that they're serving Crab Cake in the menu.... it is a bit costy, but i was sooo gonna try that... they served it nicely together with lettuce n carrot salad, the size of the crab cake as i could recall was just like the size of a burger meat only slightly thick, about 2.5 cm.... i love it... i knew i would love it.... and surprisingly, they made it from crab stick not the real crab meat, still the taste is heaven...

and after such a long time not going to StarLite Diner, i started to crave for it... Hans truly think maybe i shud try making it myself on my own instead of google thru others, since i already had some experience making daging burger from minced meat and minced chicken.... i took his words as a challenge and proved him that he's not wrong... i made 8 pieces and freeze them in the freezer....





crab stick (16-20 stick)- sliced/minced
1 medium sized red onion- diced
half yellow onion- diced
1 celery stalk- slice very2 thinly
1/4 red bell pepper- diced
1/3 teaspoon groud black peppers

1 tblsp of mayonnaise
2 eggs
3 tblspoon flour
3 cups bread crumb/ cracker crumbs
1/2 -1 tsp salt - make sure u taste it when u done, better to put a lil at a time
half cup cheese, chop into small tiny size or grate coarsely


mix together all the ingredients in a very large bowl, (but not the egg , flour and bread crums yet)....
mix them until well combined using ur fingers.... add the remaining ingredients and again mix well....
make several big balls and pat them nicely, hold carefully and gently because they seem not to stick together.... don't worry, unless ur mixture is very moist then u must put some more flour or bread crumbs... if not, then just hold them together in a ball shape, dust with flour and press gently to flat them a bit... put in a tupperware and freeze them... it's easier to bake them while they'r still frozen... bake them at 245 degrees celcius for 10-15minutes ....

in case u'r baking the frozen one, it will take 15-20 minutes to cook at 245 degrees, line ur baking tray wt baking paper first, after 1st 10min, turn upside down and let it cook for 5 more minutes or until golden........i haven't try baking it fresh.... maybe some of u will, or i'll try later this weekend...
