Don't Be Crabby: Body SymmetryMD 's Paleo Crab Cakes

If you love crab cakes, you know finding a great tasting Paleo version can be difficult. Most are loaded with carb-filled breading, fried in fatty oil and are missing the main ingredient... CRAB!

There's no need to be crabby, though... because our Body SymmetryMD wellness squad has the perfect Paleo Crab Cake recipe for YOU!

Paleo Crab Cakes

- 1 lb. crab meat, cooked
- 1 cup cauliflower florets, steamed well
- 2 pastured eggs
- 3 Tbsp. coconut flour
- 3 Tbsp. Paleo mayonnaise (homemade or Primal Kitchen)
- 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- ½ tsp. Old Bay seasoning
- 2 Tbsp. avocado oil or coconut oil

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. In a medium bowl, add the steamed cauliflower. Gently break up into small pieces, mashing about 3/4 of it.
3. Add the crab meat and parsley. Gently fold the mixture to distribute the ingredients evenly without breaking up the crab too much.
4. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, mayonnaise, Old Bay and salt. Pour over the crab meat mixture and gently fold.
5. Sift the coconut flour over the crab and gently fold the mixture.
6. Place in the fridge to chill and firm up for 10 minutes. 
7. Remove crab mixture from fridge and form into patties. 
8. Heat oil in a cast iron pan over medium-high heat. When oil is heated, add the crab cakes. Cook about 3 minutes or until golden brown on each side.
9. Place the crab cakes on a baking sheet and place in the oven to cook through for about 12 to 15 minutes.
10. Serve with fresh lemon wedges and enjoy eating Paleo -friendly (makes 8 servings)!
