Red Lobster Crab Cakes

Crab CakesBiscuits or Crab Cakes?

As far as I know, Red Lobster doesn’t even make Crab Cakes.  But, they do have those unbelievable cheesy garlic biscuits, don’t they.  That’s what turned me on to this recipe.  Because if you don’t already know, Red Lobster has finally put their recipe in a box and can be purchased for just a few bucks at most local Grocers.  And thank God for that too, because now you can enjoy the most phenomenal Crab Cakes right in the comfort of your own home, thanks to the genius of yours truly!

IMG_0887These Crab Cakes are Crisp, yet fluffy, very moist and best of all, full of flavor.  I dare say that these are hands down the best Crab Cakes I’ve ever had.  And, the craziest part about it is, I even use canned crab meat.  So just imagine what would happen if you felt like splurging a few extra dollars on some fresh snow or king crab legs.  Wow, is the only thing that comes to mind, and realize that’s coming from a man that can’t even move now because he/I just finished eating these.  An interesting fact about these is they are surprisingly filling.  I barely ate 2 of them made from about 1/2 cup portions.  So don’t just let your eyes do the talking.  Relax and take your time, because there’s plenty to go around.  There are 2 things I should have mentioned in the video, though…
1) These can be baked if you want to cut out the Frying.
2)  If you’re Frying, Make your Patties Thick, 1 1/2 inch to start!  Do NOT make them thin like a pancake or they’ll taste like grease!

Crab Cakes Ingredients:

1 box Red Lobster Biscuit mix
1/2 cup Graded Pepper Jack Cheese
1/2 tsp Salt
3 Chopped Green Onions
2 cans Crab Meat
Oil for Frying

Follow the box instructions but add 1/2 tsp of salt and replace the Cheddar Cheese with Pepper Jack.  Then combine all remaining ingredients together.  Scoop 1/3 cup of batter for each Crab Cake and place in 1/4 inch of frying oil set on Medium low, for approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side.  Look for that Golden Brown I’m always talking about, then place on paper towels.  The biscuit box comes with an additional seasoning packet for the butter topping.  Follow the box instructions for that and lightly brush or poor melted butter mix over the top of each of the Crab Cakes, then serve.

Poor Man's Gourmet Kitchen

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference! Welcome to The Poor Man’s Gourmet Kitchen!
