Crab Cakes
Makes 2 servings

2 slices firm white sandwich bread
½ pound jumbo lump crabmeat, picked over
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoon unsalted butter
Lemon wedges to accompany

Tear bread into small pieces into a bowl with crab. Add mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, 2 Tbsp egg (discard remainder), and a pinch of salt. Mix together gently but thoroughly, then form into 4 patties (about 3 inches in diameter).

Heat butter in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat until foam subsides, then cook crab cakes, turning once, until golden brown, about 6 minutes total.

Serve with french fries and/or baby greens tossed with lemon vinaigrette.
