Crab Cakes

A community recipe by

Crab- cakes are a great hit at any gathering... They may be served as a starter or a main course and in the rare case of leftovers I make a chowder with mashed potatoes, chicken stock, a little 1/2 and 1/2 (single cream) and a rich grilled or slow roasted corn. Some would prefer the cilantro and onion left out of the mix but I think these ingredients add deeper flavor and bring it all may also add cayenne and turmeric but I prefer to add a little saffron to the rice when I serve the cakes with basmati and greens


Serves: 8 - 10

  • ½ kilogram picked crab (claw meat)
  • 1 diced red onion
  • ½ large green bell pepper (or red - diced)
  • 250 millilitres mayonnaise
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 500 millilitres dried breadcrumbs
  • 63 millilitres roasted sweetcorn
  • 1 bunch cilantro

  • Additional Information

    I like to use Alaskan King crab for this recipe but any good quality meat will work..look for shells in final pick.

    I like to serve these over organic greens with basmati rice and a good remoulade or wasabi dip
