Ingredients

  • 500 g (1 lb) crabmeat
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) roasted red peppers, finely diced  
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) breadcrumbs
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) mayonnaise or sour cream
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) parsley, chopped

  • 1 potato, baked, peeled and mashed
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • Cooking oil
  • Lemon wedges
  • Sprigs of parsley
  • Tartar sauce, aioli, mayonnaise or any kind of condiment you like

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C (300°F).
  2. In a large bowl, break apart the crabmeat. Add the green onions, garlic, red peppers, breadcrumbs, mayonnaise (or sour cream), parsley and dried herbs. Mix together.  
  3. Add the beaten egg and mashed potato. Season with salt and pepper and stir well.
  4. Shape into 8 small patties.
  5. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties on both sides until they get nicely browned.
  6. Place in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the centres of the patties are hot.
  7. Serve with a lemon wedge, sprig of parsley and condiments of your choice.

Tip:

To check if the patties are hot enough, pierce with a fork, leave it in for about 5 seconds, and take it out. If the fork is hot, the crab cakes are ready!
