Crab Cakes - smash burger style

These were really good on a bed of baby arugula with a spicy tarter sauce and a squeeze of lemon.  I smashed them on my homemade steel for LBE.

    No, no, no, no, no!  Thou shalt disturb the texture of the crab as little as possible - no more than that needed to bind the cake!  No smashing!  Goodness, gracious!

    Whyzzat? It's not the smashing. I just can't figure out why anyone would plop an egg down on top of a crab cake. =)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

  • Looks awesome. 

     I know there are people in both camps and being from a landlocked state I shouldn’t have a vote...but I love a GOOD crispy crab cake as much as light fluffy ones. The Egg was a solid choice. 

    @Jupiter Jim we had some when working on disaster relief in Jacksonville. It was a win.

    We have done them every which way.  I actually really liked the crispy edges and the small amount of time they were on the grill left so much flavor from the crab.    Loved your commandment style quote so much, I went back to your profile to see all your crabcake posts.  Left me wanting more...

    I would put an egg on about everything I cook.  SO GOOD!

    We were in Cape Cod recently and had them in the style you described and they were smashed down a touch.  They were the best I had so we decided to replicate.  We went with a spicy tartar sauce though as opposed to the hollandaise.

    I do love the egg on top, but ‘round here (top of the Chesapeake) the best crab cakes are those with the freshest lump crab, with just enough binder to hold it together, without a lot of added flavors - pinch of Old Bay, dried mustard, drips of Worcestershire.
