1 cup seasoned bread crumbs, divided

2 green onions, finely chopped

1/4 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 cans (6 ounces each) crabmeat, drained, flaked and cartilage removed

1 tablespoon butter


In a large bowl, combine 1/3 cup bread crumbs, green onions, red pepper, egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic powder and cayenne; fold in crab.

Place remaining bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Divide mixture into eight portions; shape into 2-in. balls. Gently coat in bread crumbs and shape into a 1/2-in.-thick patty.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add crab cakes; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Yield: 4 servings.
