With the a portion of crab in the palm of one hand pat the crab with the fingers of your otherhand into a diskshaped cake approximately 3/4 inch thick. It is important for the crab cakes to be the same thickness so that they will cook uniformly. Pat each cake with the bread crumbs, turning them so they coat evenly on all sides.
