Crab Cakes with Curried Yogurt Sauce


"Crab cakes are a traditional East Coast flavor; this recipe, however, gives them a Middle Eastern spin!!! They are moist and flavorful alone, but add the sauce, and WOW!"

Mix in the egg, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and Old Bay seasoning. Fold in the crabmeat. Form the mixture into 6 cakes and evenly coat with the remaining bread crumbs.

My dinner guests and I like this recipe very much as our entree because I didn't realize it was for an appetizer. I added a pound of lump crabmeat and it was great. Will make again.

These were just okay for me. I used 8 oz. of crabmeat and only one cup of the crackers and there was still just too much breading for me. Next time I will try doubling the crabmeat. Didn't really care for the sauce. My husband and teenage daughter ate it though. Better than store bought but not great. Will play with it a little more next time. Thanks

I used a different recipe for the crab cakes (old standby that I've had for years), but the curried yogurt sauce was to die for. Very good. I am thinking of other ways to use it. On a cold salmon sandwich or salad. As the base for a curry chicken salad with some added crunch (almonds or cashews), raisins and celery. I will use this again and again. It got rave reviews from my dinner guests.
