Costco Fresh Crab Meat

I remember when Costco came to Brentwood, must have been around 2000, my friend Carol said, "You have to belong, just for the crab meat!"

Carol has excellent taste, but it has taken me this long to try the crab.

The crab comes in one pound tubs in the cold cases back by the butchers. And it's wonderful.

I've put this off because I've never cooked with crab, and to be totally honest, because I'm a Cancer, it seemed like cooking my totem animal. But I'm getting over things.  (See future pimiento cheese post.) 

Here's the recipe I used, which is a combination of several that I found on-line adapted to what I had on hand.  Bob said, "delicious," which is the highest praise.

Crab cakes 

I pound crab meat (the entire tub)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 egg
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Mix together, dredge in Panko and fry about 4 minutes per side. You can add onions, garlic, green pepper to taste - I wanted mostly crab taste so mine were plain.  I served with ketchup but cocktail sauce or a mild Alfredo would be good, too.  Yep, delicious.
