You don’t have to live by the sea anymore to enjoy high quality, delicious crab cakes. Whether eating out or cooking them by yourself, they are a healthy and great snack at any time or season. The crab cake can be cooked in a number of ways: they can be sautéed, baked, grilled, or by most popular consensus, broiled. While they are delicious on their own, there is no harm trying an array of tantalizing sauces which can really bring out the flavor of the dish and open those taste buds. Since we are in Maryland, and we’ve got the crab cake perfected, it’s about time we dressed it up a little!
Nutritional Benefits of Crab
Crab is an excellent addition to a healthy eating plan and balanced diet. It is low in caloric content, but it does contain some fat, which is generally unsaturated fat. Crab is also a natural source of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help to improve memory, decrease the chances of having a heart attack, decrease risk of cancer, and possibly help to improve depression and anxiety. Crab is also a good source of vitamins A, C and the B vitamins including B12, and minerals like zinc and copper. Crab also has some chromium, which is considered a useful mineral if you have insulin resistance, as it may improve blood sugar metabolism.
Crab meat can be such a multi functioning food, that it can with just about anything. With crab cakes, you can try an abundance of different sauces, with many being so simple that can be whipped up in your own kitchen. The beauty of cooking being that you can just go with your own tastes or try something new and exotic. You could go simple, with just Russian dressing, or elegant, with a smoky onion remoulade! Make it sweet and tropical, with a mango puree, or give it a kick with chipotle mayonnaise or horseradish cream! Mix and match with classic sauces: wine cream sauce, pasta sauce, or even marsala curry sauce!
