I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of

Susan Sbicca's Blue Crab Cakes

Serves 5 (two each) - Susan’s restaurant in Del Mar, Sbicca (how convenient, she named it after herself) is an American Bistro. What exactly is that you ask? Susan says it’s a play on comfort food - things that are recognizable...a little Asian, a little Mediterranean...a little bit of all the great things that make up America. Whatever it is, it’s all good. But the best way to find out is to just go there yourself.


  • 1 pound Blue Crab meat
  • 3/4 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 ounce teriyaki sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 1 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Panko crumbs (Japanese bread crumbs - regular will do but these add a nice texture and crunchiness)


  1. Saute celery and onions in butter until onion are transparent
  2. When cool, add to crab meat - then add remaining ingredients and mix well
  3. Stir in Panko crumbs
  4. Add a little oil to your pan and heat
