Crab Cakes – Gluten Free

Tis the season for crab!  Here’s Brenda’s recipe for Gluten-Free Broiled Crab Cakes
Group A:

  • 1 lb of crab meat, picked over
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar (for blue crab) or lemon juice (for dungeness crab)
  • 1/3 cup finely minced parsley

Group B:

  • 1 egg well beaten
  • 1/4 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 – 3 tbsp of mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp prepared mustard

Pick over crab meat to remove tiny shell pieces.
Sprinkle cider vinegar or lemon over crab meat and gently mix.
Gently mix parsley into crab.

In a separate bowl mix, Group B ingredients together and then add to Group A ingredients, mix gently, but completely.  Form balls for cocktail portions, or into paddies for meal portions.

Spray broiler pan with oil spray before placing crab on broiler pan.

Broil, high, on each side until brown.
(3 to 5 minutes or more depending on your oven.)
Stay close – these cook very quickly.

This recipe also works great for Salmon cakes (use cider vinegar) using either freshly cooked salmon, (good way to use left-over cooked salmon) or canned salmon.

Quick Cocktail sauce

  • Good Quality Ketchup
  • Add horseradish and lemon juice to taste.
  • Optional – capers
