Celery seed- ¼ teaspoon
Seasoning- 2 teaspoons

Chopped parsley- 1 tablespoon
Bread crumbs- 1 ½ cups for coating and 2 tablespoons extra.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Blend the egg in a bowl; add the lemon juice, mayonnaise and the Worcestershire sauce. Take another bowl and mix the celery seeds, dry mustard, seasoning, pepper and salt altogether. Once they are mixed, now add the dry and the wet ingredients together.
Remove the shells from the crabmeat and add the parsley with two tablespoon of bread crumbs. Mix all of these very gently so that the crab meat does not crumble.
Now add the crab mixture with the wet mixture and then blend them well. Then make 3 inch crab cakes out of this mixture. Once the crab cakes are made, coat them with the bread crumbs. Put the entire crab cakes into the refrigerator for an hour so that the crab cakes get chilled.
After an hour, bring out the crab cakes and put them on a greased cookie sheet. Bake the crab cakes for the next 20 minutes or at least until the cakes turn slight brown on the outside. Once that is done, your seafood dinner is finally ready. You can serve the crab cakes with tartar sauce or the cocktail sauce. You can also make it simpler by serving the crab cakes with a squeeze of lemon.
