Transcript:How to Make Creole Crab CakesHi guys, Greyson Ferguson here with About.com. Today we'll be making crab cakes.
Ingredients for the Creole Crab CakesTo begin, you'll need:
- 1 pound of blue crab meat
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon of dry mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of celery salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
- 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of mustard
- 1/2 green pepper
- 1/2 red pepper
- 1 chopped onion
- 1 cup broken up saltine crackers
Make the Creole Crab CakesPour a small amount of oil into a pan and toss in the onions and peppers. Saute them until the onions are translucent, then remove from heat.Combine all of the ingredients together, minus the crackers. Blue crab is naturally blue when caught fresh, but then turns a reddish-orange color after cooking.
If you want added heat in the crab cake, feel free to substitute the red and green peppers with a spicy chili or jalapeno pepper. Mix in the crackers. It is best to use salt-free saltine crackers, as it lets you control exactly how much salt is in the cakes. You can also use whole wheat saltines if you choose.
Place the crab cakes into a refrigerator and let sit for an hour or so. Mold the crab cakes into balls and squeeze. This is going to help reduce some of the moisture contained in the crab. Place the formed cakes onto the skillet you use to saute the onions and cook. Each side should take anywhere from three to five minutes to cook on medium heat.
Remove the crab cakes and serve. If you want to spruce up the cakes, you can purchase blue crab shells from many stores that sell seafood, then place the cake into the shell.
Well, there you have it. For more information, visit us on the web at About.com.
