Bay Crab Cakes

2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbsp. Fresh Parsley, chopped
2 tbsp. Unsalted Butter
1 1/2 c. Japanese Bread Crumbs
1 1/4 lb Fresh Lump Crab meat
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
1/2 tsp White Pepper
1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/2 oz. Lemon Juice
1/4 c. Dijon Mustard
1/4 c. Mayonnaise

Gently break up crab meat into a mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients except olive oil, butter and 3/4 cup of bread crumbs to the bowl. Gently mix all ingredients by hand. Do not over mix. The mixture will be lumpy.

On a flat plate add remaining bread crumbs. With your hands, shape the crab mixture into 12 equal puck-shaped cakes. Dip both sides of each crab cake into the bread crumbs to coat it well. Place the crab cakes on a tray, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 3 hours.

In a large skillet, heat the butter and extra virgin olive oil over medium heat. Place crab cakes in the skillet and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Serve Immediately.
