1 Whole, Fresh Dungeness Crab, lumped and picked
1/3-1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
3 Green Onions, Finely Chopped
1T chopped fresh parsley
1/3-1/2 Cup Breadcrumbs
Sprinkle of Old BayLimes (or lemons)
Degill and clean the crab to remove the yellowish debris. Lump the crab and pick through, careful not to break the crab too much. Set aside in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix mayonnaise, green onions, and parsley until well mixed. Stir in breadcrumbs until the mixture is a thick paste. Carefully combine the paste with the crab. (I folded them together with my hands). Form 5-6 small crab cakes from the mixture (per crab).
On a flat surface, sprinkle bread crumbs and Old Bay. Lightly press crab cakes into breadcrumb/Old Bay mixture. Let stand a few minutes.
After the cakes are formed, in a large saute pan heat 2T of butter in a saute pan over medium-high to high heat until butter bubbles and just starts to brown. Cook until browned, about 40 seconds to 1 min per side. Serve with limes (or lemons immediately)
