Paleo Crab Cakes

  • Author: Tina Turbin


These paleo crab cakes are delicious and the real deal! You can make the patties up to two days ahead of time and keep cold in the BACK of your fridge if you’d like. They are wonderful served cold as well. Great source of protein and also a perfect way to present seafood to the little ones and better yet to introduce the idea of helping in the kitchen.


  • 1 pound crabmeat
  • ½ cup paleo breadcrumbs (I use Julian’s Paleo Coconut Bread or my own)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 6 tablespoons grass-fed butter or ghee
  • 1 tablespoon homemade mayonnaise


  1. Place crab and toasted breadcrumbs together in a bowl. Mix.
  2. Add beaten egg, mustard, seasoning, Worcestershire and mayonnaise.
  3. Mix gently. Avoid breaking crab as much as possible.
  4. Form into 8 large or 12 smaller cakes – flatten and make round with hands to be like a hockey puck.
  5. Heat your butter 2 tablespoons at a time. Allow space between cakes. Don’t overcrowd.
  6. Cook until golden brown.
  7. Set on paper towels and cover to keep warm.
  8. Enjoy!
