Crabby Crab Cakes

I’ve made a trial and error of this recipe a few times and have finally come to one that I really enjoyed making and eating. These were absolutely delicious and I will definitely be making them again. This recipe serves 2, or can serve 4 as a starter.


2 cans of crab meat (170-200g each)
7-8 crackers/biscuits (I used saltines)
2 eggs
½ red pepper
½ red onion
2 tbsp. chopped coriander (cilantro)
1 tbsp. light mayonnaise
1 tsp. mustard powder
½ tsp. cayenne powder (adjust to your own taste)
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Salt and Pepper
1-2 tbsp. oil for frying

To Start:
Dice red pepper and onion.
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl until well incorporated.

To cook:
Heat the oil in a non-stick pan.
When hot form the patties in your hand, this mixture should make about 4 patties.
Lay down in the hot oil and cook about 5-6 minutes on each side, ensuring a golden brown crust.
Turn gently once while cooking and allow the same amount of cooking on the other side.
When done serve immediately. Enjoy!

My accompaniment sauce is as follows:
1 tbsp. light mayo
2 tbsp. fiery hot ketchup

Mix it up and slather on top. Delicious!
