Spread a thin layer of plain bread crumbs on work surface. Form crab mixture into equal balls, approximately 2" in diameter. Place on crumbs. Gently flatten ball of crab mixture and round the edges to form cakes about 1/2" thick and 3" round. Refrigerate. In a saute pan, melt 2 tablespoons of oil until hot. Gently slide in crab cakes 2 at a time. Brown on one side approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and brown on the other side. Turn down heat to simmer and cook crab cakes another 5 - 8 minutes.
