Whether you’re thinking about purchasing or cooking your own delicious crab cakes to serve your family or friends, you’re not going to get very far without an equally pleasant side dish. Some side dishes go better with crab cakes than others, and knowing which ones to use can add that extra bit of excitement to your feast. Tartar sauce and cocktail sauce are tried-and-true, but so many other things are delicious with crab cakes. Here are some summer side dish ideas for your Box Hill Crab Cakes.
- Cole Slaw: As an American classic, cole slaw is served all over the country for a reason. It’s very popular when served next to seafood. That’s because the refreshing, mild taste works perfectly as a way to calm down the spicy impact of Old Bay seasoning.
- French Fries: Fries are also a staple of American cuisine that work with just about any food. When paired with crab cakes, you have the option of an easy solution that can be made in your kitchen. Sliced, fried potatoes can be seasoned however you want. You can cater to your guests’ tastes, and it won’t exhaust you.
- Bread Rolls: Biscuits are a great side to use, because they’re readily available and everyone enjoys them. Rolls can be purchased pre-packaged, or they can be made quickly with a simple recipe. Breaded treats like hush puppies are also very popular when it comes to crab cake sides.
- Fresh Vegetables: Why not add in a few freshly cooked vegetables? Sides like cooked broccoli or even a salad can make for an awesome and simple side. Salads are also a great way to please every guest, make a quick salad bar and allow them to pick their own toppings.
The stomach-filling protein in crab sates your appetite and is used to build and repair body tissue. Crab is a great source of two beneficial long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, which have anti-inflammatory properties. Research suggests they help lower blood pressure, protect against heart disease, improve cognitive function, and reduce conditions such as psoriasis and ulcerative colitis. Minerals in crab, such as copper, zinc and selenium, support the immune system. You could round off your meal with more healthy side dishes, or feel free to splurge a little bit with a starchy treat like pasta salad or mac-and-cheese!
