Easy Crab CakEs

Recipe by Joanne Cismaru

These pan-fried crab cakes are fast, easy and delicious. Cook them as an appetizer or pair them with a green salad for a main course. In any case, they’re fantastic!


12 oz. crab meat
1 egg
2 tsp. lemon juice
3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. Sriracha sauce
2 Tbsp. fresh chopped parsley
3 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. olive oil for frying


Add all the ingredients (except the olive oil) in a bowl and gently mix together. Form the crab mixture into patties, depending on how big you want the patties to be. This recipe should make about 10.

In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Place the patties in the skillet, a few at a time, and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Gently flip them over and cook for another 5 minutes until golden brown. Repeat with remaining patties. Serve with your favorite side dish.

Yields 12 servings.
