Chilled Crab Cakes

Chilled crab cakes are unique and very interesting, and perfect for a picnic on the go.


Ingredients You’ll Need

  • 2 cups of delicious jumbo lump crab meat
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro

  • 1 ½ tablespoons of minced jalapeno
  • ½ cup fresh avocado, halved
  • ¼ cup of fresh mango, diced



  • Combine the crabmeat, lemon juice, cilantro leaves, fish sauce, and jalapeno into a medium mixing bowl. Fold everything together. Use a ring mold to form the mixture into cakes.
  • Use ¼ of an avocado to place in the bottom of the mold as a base. Next, place ¼ of the mango into the same spot. Finish with ¼ of the crabmeat mixture.
  • Serve chilled!


A Fresh Fruit Coulis

Fruit coulis is an interesting complement to these chilled crab cakes that the whole family will love. While coulis sounds like a fancy and complicated creation, this fruit coulis requires only a few ingredients and offers a lot of flavor for a small price.

  • ½ a fresh pineapple, peeled and cored
