Consider These Side Dishes For Your Next Plate Of Crab Cakes

Try these sides with your next plate of crab cakes.

Crab cakes are a versatile seafood dish often served as the main dish in seafood dinners. Often, people serve side dishes such as vegetables, potatoes, and rice. Are you preparing a crab cake dinner but unsure what side dishes to include? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. Consider serving these side dishes with any plate of crab cakes.

Grilled Vegetables

With the arrival of the warmer months, more people will be spending more time outside on their grills. Did you know that the key to a nicely served dinner is the balance? Combine your crab cakes with a simple yet delicious grilled vegetable medley.

Roasted Potatoes

Potatoes are one of the most adaptable foods available. They’re also an excellent choice for comfort food. Roast some potato cubes in an oil mixture of paprika, rosemary, garlic, and parmesan cheese.

Corn Chowder

Corn lovers will enjoy a simple cup of corn chowder. Roast the corn to bring out the delicious tones contained within those cheery kernels. Red pepper strips bring something elusive when elevating your crab cakes to the next level. Let’s keep talking about corn for a while longer. Consider making a corn salad as delicious as corn on the cob. Herbs, spring onions, and black beans give texture and crunch to the dish.

Grilled Avacado

Avocado is more than simply a popular toast topping. Scoop some up and serve it alongside your heavy crab cakes. Throwing them on the grill or even a hot griddle pan gives the avocado those ever-so-lovely black streaks of charring.
