Crab Cakes

Hello! 

After two weeks of California road trippin’, having an amazing time with my family, eating amazing food, just having an amazing experience.. I’m sure my waist line gained a few inches for letting loose. 

Missing the fresh seafood in the USA, I’ve decided to make and share this delicious recipe with you guys. This recipe makes for five cakes.


For the crab cakes:

  • 170gr crab meat
  • 150gr peppered smoked herring (or any smoked oily fish) 
  • 1 medium sweet potato (mashed)
  • 1 cup coooked finely chopped spinach 
  • 1 egg (beaten) 
  •  cup flour
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs 

In a large bowl, combine the crab meat, smoked hearing, sweet potato and spinach. One is well mixed, shape into five patties. 

In three shallow bowls, put in each the egg, flour and breadcrumb. Cover each pattie with flour, dip in flour and fully cover it with breadcrumb. 

If you have a deep fat fryer, then perfect.. fry each pattie for about 2-3 minutes on each side at 190C or until it’s golden brown. Alternately heat the oil in a sauce pan and fry the crab cakes. 

Enjoy it with a nice fresh salad or some slaw!
