Do you ever make crab cakes for a weeknight dinner? If you’re like me, I’m guessing no.
Because, although I love (LOVE) crab cakes, I hate cooking them. Mainly: standing at the stove for 30 minutes with a pan of hot oil that splatters on everything, smells up the house, and adds a bunch of grease to my dinner.
But what if you could bake the crab cakes in less than 20 minutes using one sheet pan and just a few tablespoons of oil? You can!
The trick to this technique is to drizzle some oil on a cookie sheet and then heat it up in the oven. When you place the crab cakes on the hot pan, you get a nice sear on the bottom, similar to what you would get in a skillet on the stove top.
So easy, right? I can’t wait for you to try this one! Let me know if you do — would love to hear how they turn out! These Easy Crab Cakes are delicious alongside a Caesar salad, Baked Feta Pasta, or Simple White Rice.
