Harry Yoshimura, owner of the Mutual Fish Company on Rainier Avenue in Seattle is one of three generations in the Yoshimura family who’ve run the retail/wholesale seafood market since 1947.

The Yoshimura family knows all about the freshest seafood around, and with the Dungeness crab sport fishing season in full swing here is a recipe that involves not “frying” but “baking” up some tasty crab cakes.

Oven-baked Crab Cakes

Ingredients

5 cups Cornflakes

1/2 cup Mayonnaise

2 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

1/8 teaspoon Cayenne

2 large Egg yolks

2 pounds Jumbo lump crab meat; picked over

1/4 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter; softened

Tartar sauce

Directions

In a food processor, pulse cornflakes until ground coarse and spread in a shallow baking pan. In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, mustard, Old Bay seasoning, cayenne, and yolks and add crab meat and salt and pepper to taste, tossing mixture gently but thoroughly.

With a 1/4-cup measure, form crab mixture into slightly flattened rounds about 2-1/2 inches wide and 3/4-inch thick and gently coat crab cakes with cornflakes, transferring as coated to a wax-paper-lined baking sheet.

Chill crab cakes, covered with plastic wrap, at least 2 hours and up to 4 hours. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Transfer crab cakes to a large baking sheet. Put about 1/2 teaspoon butter on each crab cake and bake in middle of oven until crisp and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Serve crab cakes with tartar sauce.
