  • 1 pound picked over fresh backfin blue crab meat (if you can't get fresh crab meat you can substitute a can of crab meat - I recommend Philip's if you have to go that route.
  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  • Heat 2 inches of oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat.
