crab cake burgers

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound crabmeat
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs (aka Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 1/4 cup no fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 dashes hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter

Mix crab, egg, breadcrumbs, yogurt, chives, mustard, lemon juice, celery seed, onion powder, pepper and hot sauce in a large bowl. Form into 6 patties.

Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until the butter stops foaming. Cook the patties until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Serve atop a whole wheat English muffin with tarter sauce or a lemon-juice-dressed salad of greens, sprouts and sliced peaches. Makes 6 Servings.

* This recipe works best with convenient pasteurized crabmeat, usually found in the refrigerated case near the fish counter. If you prefer lump crabmeat, cut it into small, uniform pieces.
