Crab Cakes Recipe With Garlic Aioli

email

Dare I say? The Hallmark channel is playing Christmas movies starting today.  I am more excited than usual this year for the sappy, cheese-y goodness of Hallmark Christmas movies.

Thanksgiving and Christmas event planning is underway. Tailgate parties have started. It is officially time to work on your appetizer game. These appys are the coziest in all the appetizer kingdom.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Crab Cakes Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Panko crumbs
  • 1 T. mustard
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 2 t. Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 egg
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound crab
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 cups herb-seasoned croutons

Stir all ingredients except croutons together.  Allow to sit for about 1/2 hour so Panko-crumb binding can moisten.

Measure croutons then grind well and set aside.

Form crab mixture into patties then coat each in ground croutons. Crab cakes will be fragile.

Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray or brush with olive oil. Place crabcakes on pan. Bake for about 30 minutes. Outer breading will be light golden brown and crispy.

Garlic Aioli Ingredients

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients well and serve along side crab cakes.

Small patties or ball-shapes are perfect appetizers. Larger patties can be placed on a toasty bun with ice-cold lettuce and garlic aioli. No matter how your serve these flake-y goodness, no one will walk away crabby.

Tasty Tip: Speaking of cheese-y goodness… leftover flakes of crab cakes? Just gather and save to sprinkle on top of some homemade mac & cheese. Pair with a Hallmark Christmas movies and your favorite wine.
