This recipe was delicious - it was full of flavor and easy to make. I splashed a little fresh squeezed lemon juice on mine which made it even more savory. I will definitely make this again. I think this would be a great dish for families, or it could make a nice appetizer for entertaining if you just serve one croquette instead of two.
Cajun Crab Croquettes
From EatingWell: December 2006
Crab cakes get a Louisiana spin with Cajun spice and corn. Although any type of crab works here, we prefer the texture of lump crabmeat. Serve with Zesty Rémoulade Sauce. Make it a meal: Serve on arugula salad.
5 Reviews for Cajun Crab Croquettes
I usually don't leave reviews for recipes, but this one was SO good, that I had to! It was super easy, VERY flavorful, and you get to eat two patties for under 300 calories! I was stuffed and well within my diet goals, bonus! I would highly recommend this recipe. I followed the recipe as-is and wouldn't suggest any changes!
I modified the recipe slightly. I didn't have green pepper, so used red pepper. Didn't have mayo so used jalapeno greek yogurt, also added 1 tsp of dijon mustard and 1tbsp cucumber dill yogurt dressing and 1 garlic clove. I used panko bread crumbs. I shaped into patties and just mixed the bread crumbs with the cajun seasoning and pressed into patties. I refrigerated for about an hour and sprayed the patties with olive oil, didn't have canola oil in a pump. I cooked them on parchment paper and flipped them over about half way through. Yummoooo.
We tried the recipe with mayo this weekend and it was very good. Enjoy!
I haven't tried these yet because first it says get sour cream but in the preperation it says add mayonaise...so which one does it take? The recipe sounds wonderful though I can not wait to try them.
