Love crab cakes, but hate the calories and fat that come with the traditional recipe?
Here’s my healthy version of this decadent meal:
(makes 4 large or 8 small cakes)
1 serving for lean and green meal = 1 large or 2 small cakes
â€¢ 1 egg or 2 egg whites or Â¼ cup egg substitute
â€¢ 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
â€¢ 1 drop Tabasco or 1/8 tsp Old Bay
â€¢ 1/3 cup low fat mayonnaise
(try substituting some nonfat Greek yogurt to save even more calories)
â€¢ Â¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
â€¢ 1 pound jumbo lump crabmeat
â€¢ 3T breadcrumbs
Combine all. Add crabmeat after all ingredients are combined. Gently toss in crabmeat. Heat butter spray in skillet and brown on both sides. Place in 400Â°F for 8 min.
Smarter Tartar Sauce
â€¢ 6 tablespoons nonfat plain Greek yogurt
â€¢ 2 tablespoons low fat mayonnaise
â€¢ 1 scallion, finely chopped
â€¢ 1/4 cup finely chopped pickles or relish
â€¢ 1 tablespoon chopped capers
Combine all the ingredients and stir.
Low in fat and calories (~130 calories for entire recipe, yields Â¾ cup sauce).
