Crab Cakes

Ingredients:

1 oz           Olive oil
1 cup         Onions yellow               1/8″ diced
1 Tbl          Garlic cloves                 Finely minced
1/2 cup      Celery                           1/8″ diced
1 each       Red Bell Peppers         1/8″ diced
2 Can        Crab Meat Lump
1/2 cup      Shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup      Mayonnaise
1 1/2 cup   Panko Bread Crumbs
1 1/2 Tsp   Salt
1 1/2 Tsp   Pepper

2 Tsp         Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 Tsp      Tabasco Sauce

Directions:

1.  Heat olive oil in pan over medium heat and sauté onions, celery, peppers, and garlic
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.
3.  Make 4 ounce patties, using additional panko to slightly coat the surfaces.
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.)
