With spices and smoky chipotle peppers, these crispy crab cakes are addictive! These are topped with fresh salsa with creamy avocado and sweet mango.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SALSA:
  • ½  Avocado, Peeled, Pitted, And Diced
  • ⅓ cups Frozen Mango, Thawed And Diced
  • ⅓ cups Sweet Corn, Thawed
  • 1  Lime, Juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon Cilantro, Chopped
  • ½ teaspoons Minced Garlic
  • FOR THE CRAB CAKES:
  • 1 cup Cooked Fresh Lump Crabmeat
  • 1  Egg
  • ¼ cups Whole Wheat Breadcrumbs
  • 1  Small Chipotle In Adobo, Seeded And Finely Diced (available In Small Cans In The International Foods Aisle)
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Paprika
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Preparation

To make the avocado-mango salsa, add the following into a large bowl: the diced avocado, diced mango, corn, lime juice, chopped cilantro, and minced garlic. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and stir until well combined.

To make the crab cakes, add the following into a mixing bowl: the crabmeat, egg, breadcrumbs, diced chipotle pepper, garlic powder and paprika. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and stir until mixture is well combined.

Shape handfuls of the crabmeat mixture into four, round, half-inch thick patties.

Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. When oil is hot add the cakes into the pan. Cook the crab cakes until edges begin to look golden, about 4-5 minutes. Flip and cook the the other side, about 3-5 minutes more. Plate them!

Top each crab cake with spoonfuls of avocado-mango salsa and serve.

Yield: 4 crab cakes, 2 servings (1 serving is 2 crab cakes)

I’ve never tried baking these, but I believe it would work just fine. I’d try medium heat (425 degrees F) and I’d recommend brushing the tops with olive oil to help them crisp a bit in the oven :)

Can these be baked as well as fried?
