Are you will still reeling with the merry-making and feasting covering the long weekend?

Well, you can find another weekend of food and fun coming right up.

Give meaty roasts an opportunity with this seafood indulgence of homemade crab cakes.

I used canned swimmer crab claw for convenience.

If you can not become older Bay Seasoning, use a dash of cayenne including a flat teaspoon of cracked pepper.

The most important step is refrigerating the crab mixture not less than a couple of hours and half. This will give it to set so its possible to shape it into patties.

Crab cakes


  • 1 stalk celery (80g), diced
  • 1 red onion (70g), diced
  • 5g fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley flakes
