I'm not, whatsoever, a fan of seafood...except for crab.
I love crab cakes but they are VERY fattening.
After much searching of the web for low-fat recipes, I stumbled upon this one.
I got the basis of this recipe on Gina's Skinny Recipes Blog, and then I substituted a few different ingredients.
To make four cakes you'll need:
- 9oz crab meat (I used canned and refrigerated it ahead of time so the cakes bound together better)
- 13 Ritz crackers, crushed
- 2 egg whites, beaten
- 1 scallion, finely chopped
- 2 Tbsp red pepper flakes
- 2 Tbsp Tastefully Simple Spinach and Herb seasoning
- 1 Tbsp low-fat mayo
- 1 tsp lime juice
- salt and pepper
Mix all ingredients together. I used a 1/3 measuring cup to form each cake. Placed it on a greased cookie sheet and baked for approximately 8 minutes per side.
For the Chipotle sauce, I used 1/2 cup Kraft Chipotle Mayo and 1 tsp lime sauce and mixed together.
2 cakes...347 calories.
Served with some veggies and water and you have an under 400 calorie meal.
