Crab Cakes

Crab cakes are a treat, and a healthy one at that!

They’re packed with protein, as well as long chain omega-3’s. They too are a good source of selenium, which facilitates our antioxidants to prevent cell damage. They’re a great source of B12 too, which is great for iron absorption, blood circulation, and normal steroid and hormone production.
Copper is much more abundant in crab than in fish. It serves to maintain our bodies’ use of iron. Copper also plays a part in keeping our blood vessels, bones, and nerves healthy.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups lump crab (Costco sells a great one)
  • 1 cup GFCF white bread, crust removed
  • 1 cup GFCF dry breadcrumbs
  • Optional, 1/2 cup bacon bits
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 3 Tbsp GFCF milk
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp GFCF cajun spice

Preparation:

  • Remove bread crusts
  • Mix everything but the crab and dry breadcrumbs in food processor and blend
  • Add to a bowl and add crab meat, folding together
  • If too dry, add a little more GFCF milk
