Crab Cake Sliders

I am a big seafood person and I love Crab Cakes. Last week while at the beach I decided to try to come up with three different ways to eat crab cakes. Now, don’t get me wrong, my Crab Cakes by themselves are great especially with a lemon aioli sauce. But what happens when you want something more than a Crab Cake?

I figured out a way to enjoy Crab Cakes in a lot of different ways! Crab Cakes 3 Ways – check the post out here.

These Sliders are topped with a Gruyere cheese – which is a mild swiss cheese and a Strawberry and Mango Salsa.

Start with making these fritters with my really easy 10 minute recipe:

  • Combine the crab, green onions, garlic, lemon juice, ritz crackers, mayo, egg, cilantro, salt Worcestershire Sauce and Old Bay seasoning in a bowl and stir until thoroughly combined. 
  • Heat a skillet on medium heat and add olive oil. While its heating, form the crab mixture into small patties. 
  • Place them in the skillet and cook until lightly golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.

Then make your slider. I like to use the Hawaiian Roll Sliders (they are way tastier)! I spread Mayo on both sides of the bun, put cheese on both sides and then top with the Crab Cake and Salsa.

Finally, put the open faced sandwich in the oven and let everything melt together – then enjoy!!

Ingredients

Crab Cakes

  • 1 pound lump crabmeat
  • 3 green onions finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 cup crushed Ritz Crackers
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce

Strawberry & Mango Salsa:

  • 1 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped mango
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/8 cup diced jalapeño
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 lime, juice

PLUS: 

  • 8 ounces Gruyere Cheese
  • 12 slider buns
  • 2 tablespoons Mayo

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350.

Make Crab Cakes.

  • To make the crab cakes combine the crab, green onions, garlic, lemon juice, ritz crackers, mayo, egg, cilantro, salt Worcestershire Sauce and Old Bay seasoning in a bowl and stir until thoroughly combined. 
  • Heat a skillet on medium heat and add olive oil. 
  • While it’s heating, form the crab mixture into small patties. 
  • Place them in the skillet and cook until lightly golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.

Make Salsa by mixing everything together.  The longer the salsa sits, the juicer it will get – let that help you estimate when to make the salsa – totally up to your preference! 

Assemble Sliders. Spread the mayo on the bottom slider, followed by Gruyere cheese, the crab cake and the salsa on top. 

Put the top of the slider and put it in the oven for 10 minutes.

Enjoy!
