Crab Cake Burger

Serves 2


1 egg, beaten

3 Tbs (45 mL) mayonnaise

4 tsp (20 mL) fresh lemon juice

1/8 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tsp tarragon

1 Tbs green onion, diced

226 g crab meat, lump meat preferred

½ cup panko crumbs

To taste salt and pepper

Olive oil, for frying


  1. Preheat oven to 325º F.
  2. Whisk egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice, red pepper, tarragon and scallions together in a bowl.
  3. Gently fold in crab meat (try not to break it up too much). Fold in panko crumbs, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Form into patties. Cook patties in a frying pan on medium-high heat with olive oil until brown on both sides. Finish cooking in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes, or until warm inside. Slide on a bun of your choice, and serve!

*Try swapping in some tasty add-ins like diced jalapenosdill pickle, avocado chunks or sundried tomatoes.
