1 cup         Onions yellow               1/8″ diced
1 Tbl          Garlic cloves                 Finely minced
1/2 cup      Celery                           1/8″ diced

until tender (3-4 minutes). Remove from heat to cool.
2.  In a mixing bowl, flake the crab meat; add the sautéed vegetables, cheese and
seasonings. DO NOT OVERMIX, or the cakes will become tough and chewy.

4.  Cook in pan with a lightly oiled surface on both sides to brown and crisp.  The cakes
should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees in the middle (moist and
tender.)
