  10. 2 Tbs freshly chopped parsley
  11. canola oil, for frying
  12. Lemon wedges, for serving

  2. In another bowl mix crabmeat, panko and parsley.
  3. Fold mayo mixture into crabmeat.
  4. Form into 8 patties.
  5. In large skillet over medium-high heat, coat pan with oil and heat until shimmering.

Crab Cakes reheated

I hope you and your family will enjoy these crab cakes. We had them leftover and enjoyed them for two more days as an appetizer before meals or at lunchtime. I think they tasted better the next day or so.
