Chef.Foodie's picture
Ingredients
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Yellow onion 1 Small, chopped
  Cooked crabmeat 1⁄3 Pound
  Fine dry bread crumbs 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Thinly sliced green onions 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Egg 1 , lightly beaten
  Nonfat milk 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Or Low Fat)
  Tomato chutney/Other fruit chutney 2 Tablespoon
Directions

Melt 2 teaspoons of the butter in a wide nonstick frying pan over medium heat.
Add yellow onion and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned and very soft (about 20 minutes).
Scrape cooked onion into a bowl and add crab, crumbs, green onions, egg, and milk; mix well.
Divide mixture into 6 equal portions and shape each into a 3-inch-diameter patty.
(At this point, you may place patties on a plate in a single layer, cover, and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.) Melt remaining 4 teaspoons butter in same frying pan over medium-high heat.
Add crab cakes in a single layer (do not crowd pan); cook until bottoms are lightly browned (about 5 minutes).
With a wide spatula, carefully turn cakes over and cook until browned on other side (about 5 more minutes).
Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
To serve, arrange 3 crab cakes on each of 2 dinner plates.
Offer chutney to add to taste.
