Recipes - Faux Crab Cakes

This is a delicious recipe for Crab Cakes, but you don't use crabmeat. It's kind of a "poor mans" recipe for Crab Cakes. They are easy, and delicious. I make them for lunch when my hubby is home.....serve them over a salad - even use as a sandwich! Enjoy!

Faux Crab Cakes
2 cans white tuna in water
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup mayo (you can use light)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. oregano
lemon juice to taste, fresh or bottled
salt and pepper to taste
oil for frying pan

In a skillet on medium to high - heat about 2 -3 tablespoons of oil (canola). Mix all the ingredients together. Form into patties, should make 6 and fry until crispy turning only once for about 6 -8 minutes or so - they may fall apart so don't turn them right away...you want them crispy. Drain on paper towels.

Hey! I never even thought of making them with tuna. That is a great idea!
