  • Yield: Makes 16 cakes (serving size: 1 cake and 1 tbsp. sauce)
  • Prep time: 10 Minutes
  • Bake: 8 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-oz.) package fresh lump crabmeat, drained
  • 3 whole grain white bread slices
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • Salt to taste

Preparation

1. Pick crabmeat, removing any bits of shell. Pulse bread slices in a blender or food processor 5 times or until finely crumbled. (Yield should be about 1 1/2 cups.)

2. Stir together mayonnaise and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Gently stir in breadcrumbs and crabmeat. Shape mixture into 16 (2-inch) cakes (about 2 Tbsp. each).

3. Cook cakes, in batches, on a hot, large griddle or nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-low heat 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Season with salt to taste. (Keep cakes warm in a 200° oven for up to 30 minutes.) Serve with Garlic-Chive Sauce. Garnish, if desired.
