Crab Cakes:

  • 6 buttery round crackers (such as Ritz®), crushed, or more as needed

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened, or more to taste

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

  • 1 ½ teaspoons seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)

  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 pound crabmeat, drained


  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • cup diced roasted red peppers

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 360 degrees F (182 degrees C). Butter a baking sheet.

  2. Gently mix cracker crumbs, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, egg, butter, parsley, seafood seasoning, mustard powder, black pepper, and Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl; fold in crabmeat. Form crabmeat mixture into patties, about 2 tablespoons per patty. Arrange patties on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until crab cakes are golden brown, about 30 minutes.

  4. Blend 1/2 cup mayonnaise, roasted red peppers, and cayenne pepper together in a food processor or blender until smooth and creamy. Serve alongside crab cakes.

Cook's Note:

Drain roasted red peppers in between paper towels to remove excess oil.
