    I note bread crumbs are listed twice. Is this an error? Also, frying for 1/2 hour at 350 degrees seems a bit long and I wonder if the crab cakes would be burnt. Having been born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I’m familiar with the nuances of cooking crabcakes which is why I pose the questions.
