Directions

To make the crab cakes, combine the crabmeat, pimientos, scallions, 1/4 cup bread crumbs, mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, egg white, seasoning, and hot sauce in a large bowl until blended. Form into 8 equal patties.

Place the remaining bread crumbs on a sheet of waxed paper. Dredge the patties in the crumbs; transfer to a plate; refrigerate, covered, 20 minutes.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook until crisp and golden, 3 – 4 minutes. Turn and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer.

Meanwhile, to prepare the Lemon-Dill Sauce, whisk together the mayonnaise, relish, dill, lemon zest, lemon juice, mustard, and garlic in a small bowl until blended. Serve with the crab cakes.

I made this recipe, delicious by the way. I read the nutritional information but found it lacked the carbohydrates and the fiber contents. I follow a national weight lose program and in order for me to figure some of the information I need for the program I need the carbohydrate and fiber grams. This would be very helpful for me and others I know who love Paula Deen recipes but also follow the weight lose program. Thanks for creating such wonderful recipes and making them lighter.
