Skinny Crab Cakes

Growing up I only liked fish sticks. I didn’t try real fish (or anything that lived in water) until I married my husband. Now I just can’t get enough of it! One of my favorite foods is crab. I saw this recipe and I knew I had to try it!

Skinny Crab Cakes

9 ounces lump crab meat, picked free of shells
1/2 cup (about 13) reduced fat Ritz crackers, crushed
1 whole egg plus 1 egg white, beaten
2 finely chopped Green Onions
2 tbsp finely chopped celery
1 tbsp low fat mayonnaise
2 tbsp fresh cilantro
1/2 lime, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
cooking spray

In a large bowl, combine crushed crackers, eggs, scallions, pepper, mayo, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper. Mix well, then fold in crab meat, careful not to over mix so the crab remains in large chunks. Gently shape into patties using a 1/2 cup measuring cup.

Chill in the refrigerator at least 1/2 hour before baking.

Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray. Bake about 8-10 minutes on each side, until nicely browned.

I served them with Chipotle sauce. (I love taco times Chipotle sauce that you can buy at the store)

I got this recipe from SkinnyTaste. She truly has delicious recipes! She made these crab cakes and had a Zesty Chipotle Lime Sauce to go with it.
You can find the recipe for the sauce Here.
