How to Make Crab Cakes

Plays: 127274

In this video, Chef John reveals the secret to a delicious crab cake—hardly any filler and big chunks o’ good fresh crab! You’ll see how to fold the crab into the slurry. (Incidentally, you will also learn what a “slurry” is.) These cakes are a little fall-aparty until you get them into the oil, but they are well worth it! Check out the recipe for Chef John's Crab Cakes. And one additional tip: for best results, be sure to use good quality crab for these cakes. See more Chef John videos >>

yes is recipes are so easy step by step and he does makes you want to go out in buy all the ingredients and try it right then and now. Never thought about using dungeness crab but what the heck try something new. Gonna try it with claw meat hope it turns out good.

It sure looked to me that Chef John added at least 2 tsp of cayenne pepper to his slurry in the video. :)
