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.

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.
