Best Crab Cake Recipe

crab cake

Testing the best crab cake recipe I could possibly find, I remember thinking what I always thought about it: "Here's a dish I'll never prepare at home. It must be extremely difficult."

Well, guess what. I found this wonderfully easy crab cake recipe! So simple to prepare, absolutely delicious and very elegant to serve.

My secret? Simple ingredients and I broil them in the oven, all at the same time.

This recipe is light because there is no frying involved (therefore less cleaning) and I use low fat yogurt and low fat mayo. Trust me, the taste is all there.

Best crab cake recipe? Maybe!


Serves 5

  • 1 lb crabmeat, cartilage removed, drained and flaked
  • 1/4 cup saltine crackers, crushed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup low fat yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard (or yellow mustard)
  • 2 Tbsp low fat mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp chopped green onions
  • 1/4 tsp paprika (or red cayenne pepper)
  • Ground black pepper to taste


  1. In a bowl, beat the egg slightly and add the yogurt, mayo, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, chopped green onions, paprika and the ground pepper. Mix everything well;
  2. Add in the crabmeat and the crushed saltine crackers. Fold everything gently;
  3. Separate the mixture into five equal portions and shape them into patties;
  4. Place the patties in a baking pan that has been sprayed with nonstick coating;
  5. Broil about 5 inches from heat for 15 minutes or until golden (there is no need to flip the crab cakes over);
  6. Serve over a bed of mixed salad green, with a lemon wedge.


  1. If you don't have a broiler, place the crab cakes in a preheated 450 degree oven, until they turn lightly brown.

Luca's Two Cents Worth
Now... precisely because they're so tasty, we have to respect the moment, cherish every bite, appreciate the superb taste of the best crab cake recipe you'd possibly find... period.

How do you do it? Sit at your favorite spot (mine is the one above... the little round wooden table at our home's terrace, enjoying the view), and after preparing Marjorie's best crab cake recipe, open a bottle of Rombauer Chardonnay, one of the wonderful suggestions to pair with it!

For once I'm serious: the experience is sublime!...

Saluti carissimi...
