Simply put, this is another reason why I love living in Alaska!

Crab cakes:
¼ cup mayonnaise
½ cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
¼ teaspoon old bay seasoning
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoons dijon
1 teaspoon worcestershire
¼ teaspoon sriracha (Asian Hot Sauce)
Pinches of fine-grain sea salt and white pepper
½ lb. cooked lump dungeness crab meat, picked over

--For frying:
----1 tablespoon vegetable oil
----1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 green onion, finely sliced (green and white parts)


Prepare steamed basmati rice, according to package directions (if using) beforehand.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, add all crab cake ingredients, except crab meat; mix to incorporate.  

Gently fold in the crab meat, just until incorporated. 

Shape mixture into four 1” thick crab cakes; transfer to a wax paper-lined plate.

Refrigerate formed crab cakes until firm for a minimum of 20 minutes, or up to 4 hours.

Heat oil and butter in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add crab cakes and cook until golden on bottom, about 4 to 5 minutes per side, for a total of 8 to 10 minutes. 

Transfer crab cakes to individual plates, and serve topped with Seafood Aioli and garnish with sliced green onions, with a side of steamed basmati rice drizzled with ginger soy sauce. ~ Enjoy!

Tip:  I served these crab cakes with steamed basmati rice and ginger soy sauce, including the following as a first course:
