1 tablespoon OLD BAY® Seasoning

1 teaspoon Dijon or honey mustard

1 teaspoon McCormick® Parsley Flakes

1 cup plain dry bread crumbs

1/2 pound backfin crabmeat

1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided



1. Squeeze dry zucchini in a large clean kitchen towel. Mix egg, onion, mayonnaise, OLD BAY, mustard and parsley in large bowl until well blended. Add zucchini, bread crumbs and crabmeat; mix well. Shape into 8 patties, about 1/3 cup each.
