Crab Cake Bites!

Make your regular 'ole crab cakes into fancy little bite size appetizers.

What you'll need:
(all veggies measured as minced)

  • 8 oz fresh crab meat
  • 1 tsp celery
  • 2 tsp red onion
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp green pepper
  • 1 raw egg
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire
  • 1 tsp spicy mustard
  • 1/4 tsp mayo
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

Garnish Ingredients:

Ok. This looks like a lot of work, but it's not. Mince all of your veggies, or use your food processor. In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients, including the beaten raw egg. Gently, but thoroughly mix, all ingredients together. Try not to break up too much of the lumps of crab meat.

After mixing, make your crab cake patties. This should yield about 4-5 patties. In a hot frying pan, add 2 tsp olive oil and 2 tsp butter. Let this get hot, then add your crab cakes.  Cook on both sides until brown, for approximately 8 minutes each.

Once cooked, quarter your crab cakes into bite sized pieces. Select the crunchiest, most sturdy pieces of lettuce that can support the bite size cake and place it in about a 3 inch piece of lettuce. Garnish with a small dollop of remoulade and a tiny sliver of tomato for color and serve.
