Thinking about purchasing some of our delicious crab cakes to serve your family or friends? You’re not going to get very far without a side dish! Some side dishes go better with crab cakes than others, and knowing which ones to use can add that extra bit of excitement to your feast. You don’t want to be cooking crab cakes without these sides presented next to them! Read on to discover some side dishes that pair excellently with crab cakes.
- Cole Slaw
As an American classic, cole slaw is served all over the country for a reason. It’s very popular when served next to seafood. That’s because the refreshing, mild taste works perfectly as a way to calm down the spicy impact of Old Bay seasoning.
- French Fries
Fries are also a staple of American cuisine that work with just about any food. When paired with crab cakes, you have the option of an easy solution that can be made in your kitchen. Sliced, fried potatoes can be seasoned however you want. You can cater to your guests’ tastes, and it won’t exhaust you.
- Bread Rolls
Biscuits are a great side to use, because they’re readily available and everyone enjoys them. Rolls can be purchased pre-packaged, or they can be made quickly with a simple recipe. Breaded treats like hush puppies are also very popular when it comes to crab cake sides.
- Fresh Vegetables
Gotta get those greens in somewhere! Why not add in a few freshly cooked vegetables? Sides like cooked broccoli or even a salad can make for an awesome and simple side. Salads are also a great way to please every guest; make a quick salad bar and allow them to pick their own toppings!
