As we near the beginning of fall, we are making our last-minute favorite summer recipes. This week, I want to highlight a healthful crab cake recipe courtesy of Andrew Wade, CEO of Case Specific Nutrition. Crab cakes remind me of sitting in a restaurant near the ocean with my family, enjoying the summer breeze, and eating fresh fish caught that day.


Crab cakes can be a great addition to your plate and a great source of protein: which is great for building and maintaining muscle, curbing your hunger, and is good for your bones, to name a few benefits. Crab cakes can provide high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, and vitamin B12 and this recipe can help you reach your nutrient needs. These nutrients help keep your heart and brain healthy, while providing energy. Here is what you’ll need and how to make these delicious crab cakes:


What You’ll Need:

    • 2 16oz containers lump crab
    • 1 cup egg beaters
    • 2 large whole eggs
    • ½ cup light mayo
    • 12 saltine crackers
    • 1 tbsp old bay


What to Do:

    1.   In a small bowl, combine egg beaters, eggs, mayo, and old bay seasoning into a bowl and whisk together.
    2.   In another bowl, stir crab and saltines. Fold mixture from step one into the bowl.
    3.   Roll into 4oz balls (size of applesauce cup).
    4.   Bake at 350 for 20-28 mins (depending on oven) until solidified.
    5.   Turn on broil for 3-5 min.
    6.   Let sit for 5-10 mins to cool.
    7.   Enjoy!
