Chop your pepper,shallot leeks, garlic cloves and parsley very finely , put all into a bowl
Add all the spices and all other ingredients ,except the breadcrumbs the crab meat and flour . Set aside about one half of the breadcrumbs and add the other half to the other ingredients
Mix well with your hands, until all is combined add the crab meat and gently lift it under , so that it does not all end up being mashy
Put the mixture into the fridge for 45 minutes or so then form into small patties with your hands floured . Roll the patties carefully into the rest of the breadcrumbs, covering them completely, transfer the patties to a plate and cover with clingfilm, and chill for another 45 minutes , for all the flavours to combine
Heat some oil in pan and cook a few patties at a time only, for 4-5 minutes from each side until they are cooked and golden brown.
Remember that these are very delicate because of their texture, so be gentle with them . I served with caramalised lemon butter and fresh asparagus
This will serve 3 to 4 people depending on the size patty you make .
