These mini crab cakes from BBC Good Food were a huge hit at a dinner party that my family hosted at our home a while back. Everyone kept complimenting them... They were amazed by them, and they're so easy to make!
- 200g cooked white crab meat, or imitation crab (I used imitation)
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 spring onions, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
- 2 handfuls of breadcrumbs
- Coriander leaves to decorate (optional)
1. Mix the crab, mayonnaise, onion and parsely in a small bowl. If you're using imitation crab meat, you will need it to be flaky. (I took mine apart by hand)
2. Divide the mixture into 16 parts, and then shape into balls.
3. Dip each ball into the egg, and then coat in breadcrumbs. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes, to firm up.
4. Heat a knob of butter in a non-stick frying pan. Fry the crab cakes in batches until golden.
Serve the cakes, topped with a coriander leaf.
These crab cakes are definitely something to try next time you need appetizers for a dinner party. It's guaranteed that the guests will love them! :)
