Last night I made crab cakes for dinner and I wanted to share the recipe we’ve been making lately. I feel like I should give a disclaimer that I live in Texas and crab cakes aren’t what we are known for, so I really have no idea how to make legit crab cakes. If you would like to know how to make legit quesadillas, I can TOTALLY help you out. But I think the below recipe is pretty tasty regardless of my crab cake making experience.
The recipe is inspired by my favorite cookbook. You know, I really don’t like cookbooks. I’d rather search online. But that Seriously Delish cookbook is my favorite to cook/bake from and to look through with eating disorder clients when they are trying to start getting back in the kitchen. I love that cookbook. Perhaps one day I’ll write a cookbook. How does one go about getting a cookbook deal? These are things I don’t know. Perhaps I’ll figure it out.
These crab cakes are inspired Jessica’s crab cake recipe.
My recipe goes…
1/2 pound crab (i use claw meat because the lump crab costs $$$$$)
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons orange bell pepper, finely chopped
1 egg, lightly whisked
1 1/2 tablespoon greek yogurt
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon rosemary, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Combine all ingredients. Form into small patties. Cook over medium heat with olive oil.
With these I served a tomato + blue cheese + balsamic salad.
It was a nice fresh summer dinner. ENJOY!
(pssst. feel free to critique my crab cake making in the comments below. because I really don’t know what I’m doing.)
