Chili Lime Crab Cakes

We love these Chili Lime Crab Cakes with Chipotle Avocado Mayonnaise. You can spruce them up Mexican-style for a quite filling entre' like we did here!


  • 1 lb. Crab Meat

  • 10 Saltine crackers, crushed

  • 1 large Egg

  • 2 Tbsp. Ranch dressing

  • 2 tsp. Oriental Chili Garlic Paste

  • 2 tsp. Lime Juice

  • 1 Tbsp. Cilantro

  • 2 Tbsp. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

Chipotle Avocado Mayo Sauce:

1 medium-sized Avocado, roughly mashed
1/2 tsp. Chipotle Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. Lemon juice
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 cup Mayonnaise

To Prepare the Sauce:

Combine mayonnaise, chili powder, avocado, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl and blend well. Chill.

To Prepare the Crab Cakes:

In a large mixing bowl, gently combine the crab meat, crackers, egg, ranch dressing, garlic paste, lime juice, and cilantro.

Form into 4-6 crab cakes.

Sauté in olive oil until golden brown on both
sides. Try to turn them only once, so they don't fall apart.

Serves 4-6.
