Foodie Friday ~ Maryland Crab Cakes

1 pound cooked crab meat, picked through for shells and cartilage
3/4 cup bread crumbs
2 shallots, finely chopped
1/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon Chesapeake Bay seasoning
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

In a large bowl, combine the crab meat, bread crumbs, shallots, milk, mayonnaise, parsley, Chesapeake Bay seasoning, and pepper. With moistened hands, form into 8 small round cakes; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
Place the flour on a sheet of wax paper; lightly coat each cake on both sides.
