As much as everyone in Maryland loves a good crab cake, sometimes we feel like switching up the taste by trying different sauces. Whether you’re in the mood for spicy, sweet, or tangy, a new sauce is a perfect way to add even more flavor to your favorite crab cakes.
Fresh lemon and herbs are the perfect pair to a delicious crab cake sauce and complement the delicate crab flavor brilliantly. With a mix of lemon, fresh parsley, thyme, chives, mayonnaise, and Dijon mustard, you’ll easily make a delicious side for your next crab cake meal.
If you prefer to eat spicy crab cakes, try pairing them with an Asian-influenced sweet and spicy mango puree. Start with a ripe mango, peeled and cut into chunks. Then, use a blender to puree the mango with one tablespoon of oil and one teaspoon of chili sauce until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, and you’ve got a delicious mix of sweet and spicy flavor that everyone will love.
If you’re looking for an entirely spicy dip, we’ve got you covered! The chipotle mayo sauce gets its heat from one chipotle chili in adobo. You will need to purchase a can of these, which contains chilis- smoked and dried jalapeños- rehydrated and canned in adobo sauce- a sweet and tangy purée of tomato, vinegar, garlic, and some other spices. These chilies are quite spicy, but scraping out the seeds reduces the heat a bit. This recipe calls for one chili to be seeded and minced, then mixed in a bowl with mayonnaise, fresh lemon juice, Old Bay Seasoning, Dijon mustard, and salt and pepper.
If you’re looking for a completely different sauce with a unique taste, try this horseradish cream to pair with your crab cakes. The sauce is simple to make, by combining only three ingredients: ½ cup of sour cream, two tablespoons of drained bottled horseradish, and ¼ cup of mayonnaise.
