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 :).
