Procedure edit

  1. Combine Florida Bay seasoning, mayonnaise, egg, mustard, cayenne, chives, cilantro, coriander, and lime juice in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Season to taste with white pepper and kosher salt.
  3. Fold in the bread crumbs and crab meat as gently as possible, trying to avoid breaking up the lumps.
  4. Rest mixture in the refrigerator ½ to 2 hours.
  5. Divide and shape into 5 patties.
  6. Heat butter in a large heavy-bottomed skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat.
  7. Cook the crab cakes in the butter about 2 minutes per side, until golden brown on both sides.
  8. Lower heat to medium and cook until the cakes are hot but still moist on the inside, about an additional 3 to 5 minutes per side.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • Florida Bay seasoning, also known as Old Florida Bay seasoning and Florida seasoning, may be difficult to find locally. It is available through several Internet-based merchants. Alternatively, you could substitute Old Bay seasoning.
