Ingredients

1lb of Fresh shelled crab meat
1 egg
1 cup of panko bread crumbs
½ cup of plain greek yogurt
½ cup of light mayo
1tbs of garlic and herb Old Bay seasoning
2 sage leaves
½ bundle of cilantro
2 sprigs of rosemary
1 tbs of fresh thyme
3 basil leaves
1 red onion
Olive oil
2 tbs of butter

Instructions

Finely chop all herbs together, and then chop the onion. Set aside.

Preheat sauté pan to medium low heat, and put about ¼ inch of oil in pan with 2 tbs of butter and allow to heat up until you can put the end of a wooden spoon into the oil and it bubbles up around the spoon or about 350 degrees.

Mix together herbs, mayo, yogurt, old bay and egg stirring to fully incorporate.

Then add in crab, followed by onion, and then panko.

Form into patties. Place into oil, I did four at a time, so I didn’t overcrowd the pan.

Cook on both sides until brown and slightly firm.
