Crab Bites

Somewhere shy of a fish cake, these crab bites are so simple to make.

Drain a 170g can of crab meat per person. Drained weight is about 140g?

Add in some flavours - ginger, chilli; some herbs - coriander; some padding: spring onions.

Add one egg per portion of crab meat, combine fully, form into three or four balls, drop into a heated skillet with hot coconut oil and press down gently to flatten.

Give it a couple of minutes on each side and then drop the heat. Give it a couple more minutes each side and then serve.

Serve out onto a plate with a light salad. Accompany with a simple tartare of caper, gherkin, dill and lemon juice in soured cream.

    1. Hey, Michelle! Good to see you here!

      These are so much fun! So easy to make. Dumbing it right down, it's a case of ... can of crab, one large egg, whatever flavours you want ...mix together with a fork, form patties, fry, eat.

      I hope you have a lot of fun. Combinations of flavour make a totally different dish.

    2. I was craving something fishy the other day after having salmon cakes last week, and these with maybe some curry powder would be great for the craving!
