Asian Inspired Crab Cakes

I got some crab meat on sale at whole foods the other day, nice wild caught. I was going to make fried rice with it but then thought no crab cakes. So  googled some recipes and came up with Rebecca's Asian inspired crab cake and if I do say so they are so good :-)


  • 8 oz, one cup of crab meat, if you can get fresh even better
  • one shallot diced
  • one tablespoon soy sauce 
  • one teaspoon of chili garlic sauce
  • one egg beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a pinch of Thai seasoning - I have one called Thai garden by Urban accents
  • one tablespoon of mayonnaise
  • one tablespoon on panko breadcrumbs
  • and about a tablespoon of panko to coat the crab cakes

  1. mix all the ingredients together in a bowl
  2. form into small cakes I made about 5 small ones
  3. coat with panko and saute in olive oil
  4. on a fairly high heat to make crispy about 5 minutes on each side
I served them over a fresh salad, of peach, blueberry, tomato, cucumber and lettuce. 

excited to be adding this to the app update :-)

  29. tabitha he he fruit is good with everything

  30. Hi Rebecca, I would SO love to be able to try just one crab cake made by you or anyone, except that I have an adult-onset allergy to shellfish. My memory vividly and perfectly recalls the incredible flavors of each shellfish, but alas I must not partake anymore. As a nutritionist, can you tell me how to substitute salmon, if at all possible, and any other adjustments I would need to make in order to prepare this (sans) crab? I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

  31. Roz I think any fish would work as long as it held together well maybe a white fish with a more delicate flavor ? flakey cod ?


  32. These look great! What a great twist on a classic favorite :) So glad to be your newest follower!

  33. These look wonderful! I have to go to Whole Foods later today and will see if they have some nice fresh crab :)

  34. These look SO good! I'll take crabcakes any way that I can get them, and I've never had Asian inspired ones before :)
