Crab Cakes

I had bought some canned jumbo lumped crab and didnt know what to do with it for some time. Finally I decided to make some crab cakes with it. I suggest using fresh crab though because I found the canned crab too fishy tasting.

-1 lb fresh lump crab
-2 teaspoons mayo
-3 tablespoons flour
-1 teaspoon seafood seasoning like old bay
-salt and pepper to taste
-panko (japanese breadcrumbs)
-1 egg
-oil to fry

To make:
1. make sure to pick over crab for peices of shell, mix crab, seasoning, salt and pepper, and flour in a bowl.
2.heat some oil in a frying pan
3.dip cakes in egg and coat in panko
4. place cakes in frying pan and fry until brown on both sides
5. plate with some tartar sauce or cocktail sauce and some lemon slices
6. sprinkle some lemon juice over cakes
When finished they should look something like this:
