📝 Ingredients:

8 ounces (225 grams) lump crab meat, picked over for shells
8 ounces (225 grams) cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup (60 grams) mayonnaise
1/4 cup (25 grams) breadcrumbs
1/4 cup (30 grams) finely chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup (30 grams) finely chopped green onion
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning (or seafood seasoning of your choice)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup (30 grams) all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

📖 Let’s start cooking:

1️⃣ In a mixing bowl, combine the lump crab meat, cooked shrimp (roughly chopped), mayonnaise, breadcrumbs, red bell pepper, green onion, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, Old Bay seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Gently mix until all the ingredients are well combined.

2️⃣ Divide the mixture into equal portions and shape them into patties. You can make small bite-sized cakes or larger ones, depending on your preference.

3️⃣ Coat each patty lightly with flour, tapping off any excess.

4️⃣ Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the crab and shrimp cakes into the skillet. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they turn golden brown and crispy.

5️⃣ Remove the cooked cakes from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.
