If you love seafood, you must have relished these delicately delicious and crisp crab cakes. They are made primarily from crab meat with generous inclusions of an assorted range of other ingredients like bread crumbs, mayonnaise, milk, eggs, yellow onions, pink radishes, red or green peppers, and herbal seasonings. The best thing to complement a well prepared platter of this delectable dish is a good sauce. Here are a couple of easy recipes that would take your meal experience to a different level altogether.
Herbal Sauce
  • Fresh Basil, 1 tbsp.
  • Fresh Dill, 1 tbsp.
  • Fresh Parsley, 1 tbsp.
  • Fresh Coriander, 1 tbsp.
  • Lemon Juice, 2 tsp.
  • Lemon Rind, 1 lemon (grated)
  • Mayonnaise, 4 tbsp.
Method of Preparation
  • Soak the basil, dill, parsley, and coriander in boiling hot water for about 8-10 seconds.
  • Take the herbs out of the hot water and run cold water over them.
  • Drain the herbs well and put them, along with all the remaining ingredients, into a blender and blend till the herbs are finely ground and the entire mixture has assumed a smooth texture.
  • Pour the mixture into a ceramic bowl and put it inside the refrigerator.
You can substitute mayonnaise with crème fraiche. For those who are not aware of this term, it means fresh cream in French and is a type of sour cream (soured by using a bacterial culture) which has a 28% butter fat content and has a pH of 4.5. It is, however, thicker and less sour than standard sour cream.
Apricot Sauce
  • Apricot Preserves, 1½ cups
  • Lemon Juice, 2 tsp.
  • Nutmeg, ¼ tsp. (ground)
  • Cinnamon, ¼ tsp. (ground)
  • Water, ½ cup
Method of Preparation
  • Mix the apricot preserves with water in a pan and bring to boil.
  • Simmer for about 5-7 minutes and keep stirring the mixture constantly.
  • Take the pan off the flame and add the rest of the ingredients (lemon juice, nutmeg, and cinnamon) to the apricot mixture.
  • You can either allow it to cool down to room temperature or serve it hot. Do not refrigerate, as it will not allow the flavors to infuse well.
  • Freshly grilled crab cakes accompanied with moderately warm apricot dip, tastes divine.
Try out these easy recipes and treat your folks to a delectable seafood experience. Serve them as hors d'oeuvre or eat them as snacks, these sauces will give your dish the right flavor and aroma. You can also try them with other seafood dishes like prawns, lobsters, sea bass, etc.
