Gluten-Free Crab Cakes with Ginger and Lime

Celiac.com 02/25/2014 - Winter is crab season on the west coast. I'm a crab cake lover from way back, but they nearly always contain wheat flour, so I generally avoid them since going gluten-free.

This simple gluten-free version combines fresh crab with ginger, lime and a dash of hot sauce to deliver a light, flavorful crab cake.

Photo: CC--slettvetIngredients:

  • 8 ounces fresh lump crab meat, cleaned and free of any shell pieces
  • 4 small whole scallions, minced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, minced
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon sriracha, or any hot sauce of choice, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons of crushed Rice Chex for crab mixture
  • ¾ cup of crushed Rice Chex for breading
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1½ tablespoons butter
  • Lime wedges for garnish

Directions:
In a medium bowl, combine the scallions, cilantro, ginger, lime zest, lime juice, and mayonnaise.

Stir in the crab meat and the Chex to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1 to 2 hours.

Using clean hands, roll the crab mix into 1-inch balls.

Set out three bowls. Put tapioca flour in one bowl, the beaten egg in the second, and the crushed Rice Chex in the last bowl.

For each crab ball, roll first in tapioca, then dip in beaten egg, then coat thoroughly with crushed Rice Chex, and transfer to a plate.

Heat the oil in a large, heavy-bottomed sauté pan on medium high heat. Whisk in the butter.

Once the butter foams up and melts, place the Chex-coated crab balls into the pan and press down gently with a wooden spatula.

It is important to keep the oil hot, so do not crowd the pan. Cook the cakes in small batches as needed.

Cook each cake one to two minutes, until underside is golden brown, then gently turn the crab cakes over and cook until golden brown on the other side.

Transfer cooked cakes to a paper towel.

Serve with lime or lemon wedges and cocktail sauce or wasabi aioli:

Wasabi Aioli:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons wasabi or prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground ginger

Mix ingredients in a bowl and serve with crabcakes.

I'm hoping to donate to celiac research this year. Does anyone have recommendations as to where to donate? Celiac Disease Foundation? Celiac research at a hospital or university? Thanks!

Thank you so much for your responses!! It is so hard because there are so many unknowns, inconclusive results, and lots of waiting!! I didn't realize it was so difficult to even get the tests to begin with. Thank you both SO much. I feel much better & am more comfortable going into my doctors app...

Just looking at its name, one might wonder if buckwheat is safe for people on a gluten-free diet. However, unlike its name, buckwheat does not naturally contain any wheat or gluten. As a result, buckwheat is generally safe for people with celiac disease on a gluten-free diet. Turns out that buc...

Oh my I just re read your post. Ok now I am going to definitely say yes-you need to find someone who will test you. If this Dr. will not you may want to look for one who will. I slowly reveal my issues on here and I still keep things close to the vest. My pregnancies/labor/deliveries we...

I try not to take a lot of ibuprofen as I know it's not great for my gut. But, when I need it, I take Costco's Kirkland ibuprofen. It is labelled gluten free and I have had no issues with it.
