Ingredients in Lump Crab Cake Recipe




  • Lump Crab Meat: Always use the lump crab meat preferably the firm lump meat.

  •  Either used canned meat or fresh meat. Fresh meat always taste better but expensive one and involves a long process of cooking the crabs and then breaking them open to take out the meat.

  • Whereas the canned one is very easy to use but that meat is not always guaranteed pure crab meat.So check the ingredients before buying crab meat to ensure quality.

  • Cornmeal and Panko :  I have used the white cornmeal and Panko to hold the crab cakes together.

  • Old Bay Seasoning: Amazing flavors with this spice to make the wonderful crab cakes.

  • Mayonnaise and Cream Cheese: The very deliciousness and cheesy creamy flavor comes with these two ingredients.


Can I Bake the Crab Cakes?


Of-course Yes! Scoop out sufficient quantity of crab cake mix that you have prepared. Place the scooped meat at sufficient distance from two cakes,spray with the nonstick spray or spread some drops of oil and bake till done.



What to serve with Crab Cakes?


I have served these cakes with homemade Sour cream sauce / dip but you can serve with dip/sauce of your choice. 


Popular choices may be Tartar Sauce,Horseradish-Sriracha sauce.


Here are the options that you can serve along with crab cake:


  • Steamed Veggies

Tips to make Old Bay Crab Cake


  • Use fresh lump crab meat. Using canned crab meat also works fine,if you cant get fresh meat(even cost-wise canned is reasonable).

  • Old Bay Seasoning + Worcestershire Sauce, gets the right taste,so do not skip them. Increasing the spice level with more seasoning.

  • Add the lump crab meat finally,do not over-mix the mixture or the meat will break. Mix everything with light hands.

  • Either bake or shallow fry the crab cakes. Here I have shallow fry the crab cakes.
