Traditionally, crab cakes are fried in butter. This healthy alternative bakes them. It also takes advantage of panko, a type of bread crumb that adds a lot of crunch to a dish without adding a lot of fat.

What you'll need

  • 8 oz crabmeat
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 med lemon juice and zest
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp. Chili Sauce
  • 2 tbsp. sweet white onion, minced
  • 1 tsp. dried dill weed or 1 tablespoon fresh dill, snipped
  • 1 tsp. dry Dijon-style mustard blended with 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup panko


  • Step 1
    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  • Step 2
    Mix the first 8 ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Step 3
    Spread the panko bread crumbs on a piece of waxed paper.
  • Step 4
    Make 12 little burgers using about 1 tablespoonful of the crab mixture. Coat with panko.
  • Step 5
    Bake for 5 minutes. Turn and bake for another 5 minutes, or until very crisp. Serve on slices of cucumber, leaves of romaine lettuce, or small pieces of bread.
