1 yellow bell pepper -- diced

1 stalk celery -- diced

1 jalapeno -- minced

2 teaspoons olive oil

6 eggs

2 Tablespoons flat leaf parsley -- chopped

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon white pepper

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 pound Dungeness crab meat

3/4 Cup flour

Oil

Directions

Saute onion, red and yellow bell peppers, celery and jalapeno in olive oil over medium heat until soft, 8-10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Beat 3 eggs in small bowl. Beat remaining 3 eggs in another small bowl and set aside. Combine onion mixture, parsley, 2 1/2 cups panko crumbs, 3 beaten eggs, lemon juice, paprika, cayenne pepper, white pepper and salt in large bowl. Gently mix in crab meat, being careful not to break up large pieces. Divide mixture into 12 equal portions and form into 3-inch patties. Coat each crab cake with flour, dip in reserved beaten eggs, then coat with remaining panko crumbs. Repeat with each cake.
Heat oil for frying 1/2 inch deep in skillet over medium heat and fry cakes until golden brown, 3-4 minutes per side. Or heat oil in deep fryer to 350 degrees and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes.

"I followed this recipe exactly, and I've got to say it was the best I've tried so far, and I have tried many claiming to be be the best. I have to agree with danboy357, if you aren't following it exactly then you are kinda defeating the purpose of the recipe as written. I wouldn't change a thing, this is 'the one' when it comes to making your own sauce!" - lil nutbrown hare

"I've made this twice. Used Franks, a bit of Worcester and some red wine vinegar. Only 3 breasts, as this is for 2! Add a side of Mrs. Tt's Pierogies and a salad ... Great Meal! Will make again and may also change the ingredients! I love experimenting with flavors." - kim s.

"Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole Recipe and Video - My mom used to make this easy recipe every Thanksgiving when I was little. We kids could never get enough! It was our very favorite Thanksgiving vegetable. If you have children, or have some coming to visit you as guests this Thanksgiving, I guarantee that they will eat (and enjoy) this veggie dish! Even though I rarely cook with canned condensed soups, I still make this yummy broccoli casserole during the holiday season. It's fabulous with a Christmas ham and potatoes au gratin too. (Note: Be sure to use sharp Cheddar cheese for a nice full flavor.) Mmmmmmm!" - chef john
