Click Badge to Visit Them!!

(Mom did another Lunapic photo effect on me!)

Now that you’ve seen Teddy – let’s Shop!

This is the Hop that’s usually hosted by Bacon at Pig Love but he’s been “sharing the hosting” with the Shopping Hop for a while now and this month, Shoko and Kali of Canadian Cats are hosts.   They challenged us to come up with a seafood recipe of any kind!   Share the ingredients and the costs then visit everyone else to compare prices of things – it’s super interesting AND you get some good recipes too!

This is a delicious recipe for “Crunchy Crab Cakes”………….Mom leaves out the pimiento but that’s just HER.   She says she can’t taste them anyway so why add them???    HAHAHA   


  • 1 (16-oz.) package fresh lump crabmeat, drained   (8oz. CLAW meat $4.97)
  • 4 large lemons, divided   (69 cents each)
  • 1 (4-oz.) jar diced pimiento, well drained
  • 2 green onions, chopped  (79 cents a bunch)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten – on hand
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise – on hand
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning – (3 oz. $3.00)
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard (9 oz. $2.69)
  • 1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs), divided (8  oz. $1.99)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil – on hand

How to Make It

  1. Pick crabmeat, removing any bits of shell.

  2. Grate zest from 2 lemons to equal 2 tsp.; cut lemons in half, and squeeze juice into a measuring cup to equal 1/4 cup. Stir together lemon zest and juice, pimiento (unless you’re my Mom and then you don’t add it!), and next 5 ingredients until well blended. Gently fold in crabmeat and 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.

  3. Shape mixture into 8 patties. Dredge patties in remaining 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.

  4. Cook half of patties, in 2 Tbsp. hot oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown; drain on a wire rack. Repeat procedure with remaining oil and patties.

  5. Cut remaining 2 lemons into wedges. Serve crab cakes with lemon wedges.

 TALK ABOUT YUMMY???    And I get a bit of crab meat all for myself too!

Happy Sunday!!!!  Love, Teddy

  1. teddy you look like a real tiger!!! bravo!!! your recipe rocks!!! and we have old bay seasoning YAY… the mama has to google for the breadcrumbs, if we can’t find them here, is there anything to replace them?


    • Morning! We sent you an email this morning about how we managed to get into Scouts AND Sammy served breakfast even though we can’t load photos! Saw some messages on the Daily Digest from DM – guess things will take a while to get sorted out!!! Loved your salmon recipe too……yummers.

      Hugs, Teddy and Mom


  2. Now that is an awesome selfie, and lots of shades of the tiger in there, Teddy, for sure, I can almost hear you roar! Love the recipe too, alas with peeps fishing skills, seafood is definitely confined to tins of sardines. MOL


  3. Teddy, that is a most adorable artful selfie. The colors are great and accent your tabby markings beautifully. Our Dad loves crab cakes. Mmmm will have to show him the recipe and see what he thinks. Mom would also leave out the pimento. Sending oodles of love and hugs.

  4. You are looking a lot like Teddy the tiger today;). And crab – yummy, we would love some of those cakes. Happy Sunday!

    Woos – Lightning and Misty


  5. You look like a ferocious tiger, Teddy! OMC!

    And now you can roar for a crab cake…well, at least some crab:)

    Pawppy would love those, petcretary?? Nope, she doesn’t *do* seafood…except some fish filet now and then like salmon or cod or flounder. Maybe perch or roughy, but not shellfish…blech she says. She lived on the east coast in seafood heaven but she disdained it all…she did try it though, to her credit! MOL!
