Jumbo lump crabmeat is an investment, one to be treasured. Which is precisely why I choose minimal ingredients to pair with the succulent meat. Breadcrumbs and mayonnaise act as a binder, while a few spices bring a little kick. We finish with a sprinkling of fresh snipped chives.

How to Make Crab Cake Balls

Crab Cake Balls are fried in butter until golden brown and served with remoulade sauce.

These appetizers have just a few ingredients – lump crab, bread or cracker crumbs, chives, cajun seasoning, dry yellow mustard and mayonnaise as a binder.

Pan browned in a little butter and served with a side of Homemade Remoulade Sauce.

These crab stuffed nuggets take me back to sunny beach vacations, where fresh seafood is abundant. There’s something about the salty air, toes in the sand, warm breezes that makes us crave these delicacies of the sea.

Here are a few of my favorite seafood appetizers.
