2 pounds blue crab, picked
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2-3 extra- large eggs
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon McCormick® OLD BAY® Seasoning
1/2 cup bread crumbs, soft
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
2 tablespoons green onions, finely chopped

Combine all ingredients except crabmeat. Taste and adjust seasoning. Gently fold into crabmeat. Portion into 3 ½-ounce cakes. Lightly flour, saute in clarified butter or peanut oil. Serve immediately.

* To clarify butter, place the butter in a heatproof glass measuring cup and let melt slowly in a 200 degree oven. Do not stir the butter. Pour off the clear, golden liquid on top, leaving the white milky substance at the bottom. The clear liquid is clarified butter.
