Experiment: Shrimp Crab cakes

Shrimp Crab cakes

Tinned crab
Frozen shrimp (peeled and deveined)
1 egg
Green onion
Few drops of Sesame oil
Toasted breadcrumbs
Oil for panfrying

I’ve been wanting to try to make crab cakes for some time now. I’ve never eaten them before. This was my attempt at making shrimp/crab cakes and they came out wonderful. I don’t have exact measurements and I didn’t go by a recipe.

I used a small tin of crabmeat, to have more filling I added some thawed frozen shrimps. Drain the crab meat, add chopped shrimp, egg, chopped green onion, couple of drops of sesame oil, season with salt/pepper and add breadcrumbs. Combine this into a fairly thick “dough” that will hold together. Shape into small patties and panfry for a couple of minutes on each side. The amount I had was only enough for 6 cakes.

Best eaten warm with some chili sauce. I’ll be making these more often :).
