Mini Crabcake Recipe

crabcake recipe

We enjoy creating new recipes, especially ones that the kids will eat.  And making dinner meals that kids will eat is often a challenge for mom and dad with all the things busy parents have to do.  One of our favorite quick and easy meals, that the kids enjoy, are these mini crabcakes.  Sometimes we also use packaged salmon and make salmon cakes instead.  Both are healthy options to serve some good protein and the kids can even help make the meal.

We serve these tasty little crabcakes with kiwi and a dollop of Dijon sauce.


8 ounces crab meat

2 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp mayo, reduced fat

2 tbsp crushed pineapple

2 tbsp bread crumbs

½ tsp Old Bay seasoning

1 egg

½ tsp lemon juice

Dash of lemon zest

Dash of salt

Dash of pepper

Bread Crumb Mixture:

Bread crumbs

Old Bay seasoning



What to Do:

Mix all ingredients and shape into patties.  Mix bread crumb mixture and dip crabcakes, coating on both sides. Spray skillet with non-stick coating and heat on medium.  Lightly brown crabcakes on each side, approximately 2 minutes per side until cooked through.

Serve with slices of kiwi or pineapple and a dollop of honey Dijon mustard sauce.
