Crab Cakes

This recipe is from my cousins mother in law
1/4 C minced onion, 2T minced green pepper-saute in butter until tender (or lo fat sub margarine)
1 lb lump crab meat (i use 2 cans-next to canned tuna @grocery store)
1 1/4 C bread crumbs, divided
1T fresh parsley, finely chopped
1T mayo
1T lemon juice
1t old bay seasoning
1t dry mustard
1t Worcestershire sauce
dash ground red pepper
1 egg lightly beaten
veggie oil (sub canola)

combine all ingredients together with only 3/4 C bread crumbs
shape into patties and drudge in remaining 3/4 C bread crumbs
pour oil 1/4" deep in heavy skillet
fry patties in hot oil (med-high) 3 min on each side-golden brown
drain on paper towels
garnish w/lemon wedge/coctail sauce/tartar

*****my cousins way is to make them the same, but instead of frying, preheat oven to 370, spray butter pam generously on cookie sheet, then spray tops of cakes. bake in oven for 15-20 min. yummy either way
