GCCC Style Crab Cake
Level: Easy
Total: 50 min (includes chilling time)
Active: 30 min
Yield: 8 to 10 crab cakes


1 3/4 cups mayonnaise
6 large eggs
2 tablespoons honey mustard
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 ounce baking powder
1/2 ounce seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay
1/2 ounce Worcestershire sauce
3/8 ounce hot sauce
3/8 ounce sriracha
1/8 ounce celery seed
2 1/4 cups panko breadcrumbs
2 pounds jumbo lump crabmeat
Unsalted butter, for cooking


Special equipment: a 4-ounce ice cream scoop

Combine the mayonnaise, eggs, honey mustard, parsley, lemon juice, baking powder, seafood seasoning, Worcestershire, hot sauce, sriracha and celery seed in a large bowl. Whisk together, making sure to break up the eggs and combine all the ingredients thoroughly. Add the panko and incorporate it. Let the mixture set for 10 minutes so the panko absorbs as much moisture as possible. Add the jumbo lump crabmeat (if desired, substitute with smaller lump crabmeat to keep your cost down). Mix in the crab gently with your hands so that you don’t break up the crab lumps. Refrigerate until the mix solidifies, about 20 minutes.

Add some butter to a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Use a 4-ounce ice cream scoop to scoop a level crab cake into the pan. Cook the crab cakes in batches until golden brown on one side, 4 to 5 minutes. Then flip with a spatula and cook until the other side is golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes more.

  1. If theres one thing you can always tell from what guy really thinks about what he eats is his delivery after a few bites. If he loves it, he rarely says anything other than smile like he just hit the lotto and uses simple words. When it doesn’t float his boat he will always take up the flavors and the delivery with a nice compliment. That is the sign of someone who doesn’t want to hurt anyones feelings let alone hurt someone’s business

  2. I got a box of hand-me-down pots and skillets from some friends, and I used one of skillets to cook some eggs. It was heavily used, but man if it didn't do a good job. Nothing stuck to that skillet. I was impressed, so I turned it over after I was done to see who made it. Low and behold my boy's signature was on the back. Guy's stuff is legit.

  3. #1) They rock for sharing the recipe, that's good natured good people. #2) Is Steve single? I'll work at the restaurant also; I'm willing to earn it (in more ways than one)…

  4. He didn’t even do anything special to it. It’s a basic crab cake recipe with tomatoes, cheese, and bread.

    Atleast make a homemade sauce or pair with something to make it pop. You want people to come to your place because you can’t get it anywhere else or make it at home just as good. You know?

  5. just googled their restaurant. That sandwich, with that flattened ice cream scoop sized crab cake, will set you back $12.50. And they shamelessly hooked Guy’s name onto the sandwich’s name on their menu.

  6. I live in Staten Island NY. Been to this place and yes its "good" Is it, OMG? No way. Its basic good cooking and thats it. Nothing better than your typical diner or what you can make at home. The restaurant gets a lot of press from the show and they feed off of it. I wish they would do more with the cooking, but I guess people out here dont know whats really good and what isnt?
