Crab Cakes. A recipe at first glance that seems so difficult, But really… it’s not.. In this blog post I’m going to give you 3 different ways to eat crab cakes and you will never eat a plain crab cake again. I promise. The original Crab Cake recipe can be found here. It’s an easy recipe and I love a lemon aioli sauce paired with it.
This recipe is so easy, I have made it for lunch while working from home! You know it’s an easy recipe when you can make it on your thirty-minute lunch break!
First up, the Crab Cake Dip!
Now this recipe doesn’t take the finished crab cake and do something with it. It takes the crab cake mixture adds a little bit of goodness to it for a delectable treat! I enjoy this crab cake dip with Wheat Thins. Trust me… just try it! It’s also super good with some toasted bruschetta!
Crab Cakes are by far one of my favorite foods in the entire world! (But I also love seafood, so that should be no surprise!)
Next up, Crab Cake Sliders with Gruyere and Strawberry Mango Salsa.
I love a good slider, especially with Hawaiian Roll Sliders. The Gruyere cheese is closest to Swiss cheese and pairs nicely with the acidity of the lemon in the crab cake. The fruit on top, just adds a delicious layer of sweetness that cuts the stout Gruyere. Literally a decision sandwich if you ever need one.
Pro Tip: Put the crab mixture in the sauté pan and cook it up like you would breakfast sausage. Cut the Hawaiian Rolls straight down the. Middle into 2 parts and sprinkle the cooked crab meat on the sandwiches on top of a layer of cheese. This will make it not as difficult to eat, but definitely not as pretty!
Lastly, Crab Cake and Brie Quesadilla with a Cilantro Lime Slaw
This takes your Crab Cake and puts it in the middle of two tortillas with a layer of Brie and Jack cheese and Cilantro Lime Coleslaw. You could easily substitute the Cilantro lime slaw with old fashioned slaw, or just remove it entirely. But even though the crab cake sounds a little different than your usual. It’s not, I promise it’s so good!
I can’t wait for you to try it and let me know what you think!
