RECIPE | Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes with Stonewall Kitchen Lemon Herb Aioli

It is officially Lenten season, and you can't look too far without seeing a fish or seafood special on menus to accommodate customers who observe it. Now, before you go out and indulge in a BOGO Filet-o-Fish deal, I'd definitely suggest you try this flavorful and delicious Crab Cake recipe.

I would be remiss if I didn't credit the gentleman who shared this recipe with me shortly before his retirement from our company - after 40 years! Farmer Dennis, affectionately nicknamed "Dennis the Menace." He is hilarious, tough, boisterous, the opposite of politically-correct, sometimes cantankerous, and lovable all at the same time! A bit crunchy on the outside, but soft on the inside... just like this dish!

How I made it...


- 1 Pound Lump Crab Meat
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 Tablespoon of Mayonaise
- 1 Tablespoon of Parsley
- 1 Teaspoon of Mustard
- Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
- Pinch of White Pepper

- 4 Drops of Hot Sauce
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt
- 5 Water Crackers
- 1/4 Cup of Melted Unsalted Butter

  1. With a wooden spoon, fold in the following items: Egg, Mayonaise, Parsley, Mustard, Black, White, and Cayenne Pepper, Hot Sauce, Sea Salt, and Water Crackers. 
  2. Add in the Jumbo Lump Crab and mix thoroughly.
  3. Once all of the ingredients are combined, roll the mixture into balls (golf ball-sized) and gently flatten to shape into even cakes. 
  4. In a 12" skillet, on medium-high heat melt butter to coat the pan. 
  5. Place the Crab Cakes in the skillet and cook each side until brown (about 3-4 minutes for each side). Repeat for the remaining Crab Cakes.
  6. Pair with a green vegetable, drizzle with Lemon juice and garnish with Stonewall Kitchen's Lemon Herb Aioli (SO GOOD!)
