HOW TO MAKE KETO CRAB CAKES
Usually crab cakes are made with crackers or breadcrumbs. To make these keto, I used almond flour and you would never know!
First thing you will need to do is combine all the ingredients for your crab cakes into a large bowl and mix well.
The ingredients are beaten eggs, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, creole seasoning, celery, salt, fresh parsley, almond flour and lump crab meat.
Okay, now that’s done.. form into eight crab cake patties and set aside on a plate.
Next you will need to heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
You will need to cook the keto crab cakes for about six minutes on each side or until internal thermometer reads 165F.
Side note: You may need to cook them in two batches to avoid crowding in the pan.
While the crab cakes are cooking, mix all your ingredients for the remoulade in a small bowl.
The ingredients for the smoky remoulade are mayonnaise, dill pickle relish, dijon mustard, minced white onion, lemon juice, smoked paprika, dried dill weed, and salt and pepper.
This remoulade is so good, you will want to eat it on everything!
Remove the crab cakes from the skillet to a serving platter.
Garnish with remoulade sauce and enjoy this melt in your mouth flavor!
