We are now sharing the recipe for these amazingly delicious crab cakes with our Health Hub readers. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

1/8 teaspoon dry mustard

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 teaspoons Canola oil

1/3 cup red bell pepper, chopped

2 2/3 Tablespoon celery, chopped

1/4 teaspoon minced garlic cloves

1/3 cup diced onions

1/4 cup bread crumbs

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 1/3 Tablespoon liquid egg whites, pasteurized

8 oz. lump crab meat

1 1/3 Tablespoon light mayo

2 2/3 Tablespoons breadcrumbs

2 teaspoons Canola oil

Tartar sauce (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine Old Bay seasoning, mustard, pepper and cayenne in a small bowl and stir well.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet; add the onion, bell pepper, garlic and celery and sauté lightly. Do not brown. Add spices. Cover pan, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until vegetables soften. Set aside to cool completely.
  3. When vegetables are completely cooled add breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, crab meat and egg whites. Mix to combine.
  4. Shape crab meat into 1/2-inch-thick patties, 3 oz. each. Place remaining breadcrumbs in a shallow dish and dredge crab cakes in breadcrumbs.
  5. Add canola oil in non-stick sauté pans and heat over medium heat. When oil is hot, place crab cakes in pan and cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until browned and internal temperature reaches 165 F.

Makes 4 servings.
