Del Frisco’s Crab Cake Recipe


There are several versions of this Del Frisco Crab Cake recipe on the web.  This is the one we feel was spot on for the crab cake. The remoulade sauce however is different, as in the restaurant they use a Cajun Lobster Cream Sauce.


1 pound crabmeat, jumbo lump, fresh
1 cup onion, 1/4-inch diced
1 cup celery, 1/4-inch diced
3 egg whites
4 ounces heavy cream
1 ounce white bread, crust removed, 1/4-inch diced

1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

3 tablespoons capers, miced
1/4 cup dill pickle relish
