I took my favorite crab cake recipes and just made it bite-sized making these the perfect appetizer for entertaining. The smaller pieces are still full of flavor and will have everyone coming back for more.
Plus, did I mention how easy they are to make? I used a mini cupcake pan but you could always roll them and bake them on a cookie sheet too if you don’t have a mini cupcake pan.
I lined the cupcake pan with a non-stick cooking spray and coated the sides with unseasoned panko breadcrumbs for a little crunch.
In a pan melt 2 tablespoons of butter and 1/4 of chopped green onions. Once the butter is melted and the onions have cooked a minute or two, set aside.
In a large bowl, I mixed one pack of Louis Kemp® Crab Delights® Flake Style, garlic, panko breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, green onions, butter and green onions, and parsley in a large bowl. Gently stir to combine all the ingredients. Crab Delights are made with premium Wild Alaskan Pollock fillets and are gluten-free. They’re naturally low in calories and cholesterol. Alaskan Pollack is the most abundant certified sustainable fish species and is a great source of protein
Scoop 1 teaspoon full into each cupcake cavity.
Bake in a 375-degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until they are nice and brown.
Serve them with the Sriracha Aioli.
