My Own Simple Crab Cakes

While whipping up that simple crab and pasta dish a few weeks ago, I realized that I was going to have a pretty significant amount of Dungeness left over. I whipped up the following crab cake recipe using the leftover crab, and some ingredients that I had lying around.

Ingredients:2013-06-03 18.35.51

  • 3/4 lb. Crab meat
  • 3 chopped green onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet peppers
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tbsp. chipotle chili powder
  • pinch of salt and pepper

I hate crab cakes that have been thickened with crackers, mayo, too many random ingredients, or that are simply too small. So I tried to make these simple, flavorful and, well… big.


Mix the listed ingredients in a bowl (go on – use your hands) and form two large cakes with the mixture.2013-06-03 18.55.59

Coat the cakes in another 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs. I use panko instead of regular bread crumbs as a personal preference (I like the lighter flavor and the crunchy texture)… but you could use whatever you want.

Fry the crab cakes in butter, about 4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.

I served them on a bed of greens with some fresh ripe tomatoes.
