THERE ARE FOUR GRADES OF CRABMEAT:
claw, special, lump and jumbo lump. Using blue lump crabmeat for this recipe will result in the best texture and flavor.
ADD THE CRABMEAT
AFTER MIXING THE INITIAL INGREDIENTS
to avoid breaking up the chunks of crab too much. Then, mix in the bread crumbs gently.
WHEN ADDING THE BREAD CRUMBS,
use only as much as you need to be able to form a patty that holds together.
