Be the Boss of Sauce: Crab Cake Sauce Ideas

sauce for crab cakes

A little sauce can go a long way. You don’t want too much getting in the way of that delicious fresh crab.

Crab cakes are probably the perfect food. But if you eat them as much as we do, sometimes you want to change it up. There’s no better way to spice up your crab cake than with a little sauce. Here are a few recommendations that are great for crab cakes and all types of seafood.


This type of hot sauce is thought to have originated in Thailand, where it was made specifically for seafood. Just a little of this chili sauce will give your crab cake a kick without destroying your taste buds. Coming in at the low end of the Scoville scale, units of measurement used to quantify the spicy-ness of peppers, it will add a nice spicy flavor that even hot sauce haters can enjoy.

Lemon and Dill

Lemon is a classic seafood sauce, but adding dill to lemon juice will give it a burst of flavor. Dill is an herb in the celery family common in many seafood dishes and soups. Fresh dill is best, but dried dill is more readily available and easy to use.

Greek Yogurt, Lime and Onion Powder

It’s a simple recipe, and you’ll have to figure out the proportions of each ingredient based on your tastes. While not quite classic Greek Tzatziki sauce, it’s close enough to make you feel like you’re eating your crab cakes on an island in the Mediterranean Sea. Like it spicy? Add a little Sriracha to the mix to give it some heat.
