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.

  • 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.

It sounds like your hives resolved. I had a six month bout with them. Antihistamines really helped. My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.

My kid has Raynauds. It freaks her classmates out. She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state. It is autoimmune. She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws. I have Hashimoto?s and celiac disease. So, having multiple autoi...

Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten. Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc. Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon. Consider reading t...

When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no ...

They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more ...
