Jumbo Lump Crabcakes

1 lb. Jumbo Lump Crabmeat
1 Tbs. Meaux Mustard (or good quality whole grain mustard)
1/2 egg
1/3 cup mayonnaise

Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, and egg. Gently fold in the crab. Brush an oven proof platter with olive oil and carefully form your crabcakes so as not to break the lumps. Place into a 400 degrees F. oven for 8-10 minutes.

The secret of this dish is in the quality of the crabmeat. Don't skimp!

This is a very basic crabcake recipe. You can dredge them in flour, breadcrumbs, cracker crumbs or even crushed potato chips if you like. You can also broil them or fry them. If you can't find fresh crab you could use the refrigerated type.
