Add Some Spice To Your Life
What’s better than taking something delicious like a crab cake and infusing it with some heat? Nothing! In fact, rubbing some chili and lime with your crab cake mixture can really do wonders for the overall taste of the dish. Another way to spice up the traditional crab cake is to add some lemons and capers to the hearty mixture. Fry them up and enjoy.
Never Forget The Sauce
What goes great with crab cakes? Sauce! In fact, sometimes it’s the sauce that can make or break the crab cake. A fun aioli or a chipotle and sundried tomato sauce can really add some flair to your crab cake that everyone is bound to enjoy. Another option you can add is a fun mango-style salsa which can really provide some fun flavors into the dish that really highlights all the flavors of the crab cake in general.
At the end of the day, knowing what to add to your crab cakes to ensure the flavor and texture is still there can be overwhelming. But, experimenting with different sauces and infusing some heat and spice into your dishes can really provide a nice medium to showcase some excellent flavor profiles that you and all your guests and family are sure to enjoy.
