Crab cakes can easily be made on the grill picking up lots of flavor from the charcoal
Grilled Crab Cake Recipe
1 can Jumbo Lump crab or fresh crab if you can get your hands on it
½ cup panko breadcrumbs
12 ritz crackers crushed fine
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup Sriracha (or less based on your preference)
Combine all ingredients except crab, panko, and cracker crumbs in a large bowl. Whisk all ingredients together until you get a smooth wet mixture. Be sure to have the mayo and egg well incorporated. Fold crab meat into wet mixture taking care not to break up the lump crab as best you can. Sprinkle half the breadcrumbs and cracker crumbs on to mixture and fold again. Repeat with remaining crumbs. Form cakes with delicate care and try not to over handle. Bake at 350 until golden brown 20-25 min. Baking on parchment paper is not a bad idea. Also cooks fantastic on a grill over indirect heat.
What is so great about making crab cakes on the grill is the delicious flavor they develop. Using the BBQ Dragon will keep your crab cakes in the temperature zone you want so they are crispy and flavorful.
