Healthier ~ Crab Cakes

 

How can I take one of my favorite menu items, Maryland Crab Cakes, and make them healthier? Crab cake

 

That has been my challenge since our trip to Maryland a few months ago.  Of course we all know that Marlyand is famous for its crab cakes and even Erie restaurants list their crab cakes as 'Marland Crab Cakes'.

 

In my recipe box I found two recipes that I had made in the past.  One recipe used egg whites (that's healthier), but both recipes fried the cakes in oil. (Unhealthy!)

I prefer broiled fish over fried fish, but can't imagine broiled crab cakes.  I never thought about BAKING crab cakes until I saw Jennie Geisler's Baked Crab Cake recipe in the Erie Times recently. Crab cake

Let's try it out on the 'Master Taster'  ~ Dave

Good enough to try again w/ Mary's revisions


Mary's Crab Cakes 

  • One pound lump crab or crab pieces (not fake crab)
  • 1/8 cup finely chopped onion (I prefer green onions)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red or green peppers (red pepper is sweeter)
  •  Optional:1-2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup light mayo or fat-free mayo
  • 2 egg whites or one egg
  • 1 tsp Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp Bay Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • A few dashes Tobasco sauce (hot pepper sauce)
  • Optional:  1 tsp salt (I don't use salt in most recipes)  

Preheat oven 400º; form patties on lightly greased cookie sheet (use Pam); Bake approx. 20-30 minutes until golden brown. 

Mary's Dipping Sauce 

1/4 cup light mayo and

1/4 cup light sour cream

1 tsp ketchup 

1/2 tsp horseradish or Tobasco sauce

Squeeze half lemon 

Stir together.  Thin with olive or canola oil if too thick

Enjoy

I just saw a recipe for lemon/dill sauce that I will try next time

What an excellent idea to bake the crab cakes and maybe even a little broiling to crisp them up.
