• 1 cup crab meat (about ½ lb.); squeeze out as much liquid as possible
• 2 T mayonnaise
• 1 T Dijon mustard
• ¼ cup Panko breadcrumbs
• 1 tsp. dry dill
• 3 tsp. Cajun seasoning
• 1 tsp. black pepper

Step 1: Combine ingredients and mix in bowl. Take mixture and portion into 3-4 patties and set aside. Use a small amount of flour if cakes are sticking to hands.
Step 2: In one bowl, whisk 2 eggs. In another bowl, put ½ cup Panko breadcrumbs. In the third bowl, put ¼ cup of flour. Take crab cakes and coat in order: Flour, egg and then Panko. Make sure they are coated evenly in each step.
Step 3: In a medium frying pan, add 2 cups oil and heat to 325 degrees. Once oil is hot, carefully place cakes in the oil and fry for 2-3 minutes. Flip them and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes. Crab cakes should be golden brown.
