Healthy Crab Cake Recipes

There's nothing quite like a luxurious crab cake: crisp and golden on the outside, soft and moist inside; and preferably served with a creamy sauce. They are a delight to eat. We've collected a few of our favorite recipes that we're sure you won't be able to resist.

First up, Crab Cakes and Spicy Mustard Sauce.

We use panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) in these lightened crab cakes for its crisper, airier texture compared to regular breadcrumbs.

Bake the corn bread up to three days in advance, and keep in a zip-top plastic bag. Combine the sauce ingredients and assemble the crab cakes the night before; refrigerate separately. Any leftover crab cakes are terrific with a green salad.
