Gluten-free cakes with frosting aren’t the only cakes in town… these Gluten Free Crab Cakes are delicious and the real deal! You can make the patties up to two days ahead of time and keep them cold in the BACK of your fridge if you’d like. They are wonderful served cold as well as hot. These crab cakes are a great source of protein, and also a perfect way to present seafood to children, and better yet, to introduce the idea of helping in the kitchen.
The Lump grade of crab meat is composed of broken up pieces of Jumbo Lump (this comes from larger crabs, and the meat is from the two large muscles connected to the swimming legs). This grade of crab meat is ideal for crab cakes, giving you a great taste, and protein. Served as an appetizer, meal, or as leftovers that were kept chilled in the fridge, this recipe is great for all occasions!
These crab cakes are a super easy recipe to put together, and the flavor is absolutely tremendous. If you are a lover of crab, like myself, this recipe is perfect for you!
