Baked Blue Cheese Crab Cakes

Blue Cheese Crab Cake

While I was laying in bed one night, I thought to myself "ya know what, crab cakes would go really well with blue cheese".

Well, a few months later, I finally made it a reality. It took me a while but I finally did it. One warning to you though: please make sure you like blue cheese before you go and try this recipe. Blue cheese is an acquired taste, and it would be a shame to waste money and effort on these crab cakes to find out you don't really like blue cheese.

If you're not a blue cheese fan, go ahead and substitute for a cheese you do like. I'm sure it would be just as tasty.

Blue Cheese Crab Cake

This recipe yields about 10 crab cakes.

Baked Blue Cheese Crab Cakes
- 450g of lump crab meat
- 125g of a mild blue cheese, crumbled into small pieces
- 2 scallions, finely chopped
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 small red pepper, finely diced
- 1/2 cup of dried bread crumbs
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp old style grainy mustard
- 1 tsp of smoked paprika
- 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper
- 1 Tbsp of vegetable oil
- dash of salt and pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 375F/190C.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. With your hands, shape the crab mixture into hockey puck shapes (approximately 3 inch diameter and 1 inch thick).

3. Place the crab cakes onto the baking sheet, setting them approximately 1 inch apart. Bake for 20 minutes. Set aside until cheese hardens a little bit. Serve warm. To add a bit more taste and color, you can pan fry the crab cakes before serving. I didn't bother, to keep it on the healthier side, but I contemplated it.

My son-in-law would love these and I will save the recipe for him..He had some recently at The Bonefish Grill and raved about them:)

I was born with the Bleu Cheese "acquired taste" lol! Do you think I could make this with canned crab meat?

La Table De Nana,
Do they have blue cheese crab cakes at The Bonefish Grill? I'd be interested to try someone else's version.

The Benny's,
It all depends on your personal taste. If you like the taste of canned crab meat then I would go for it. The only think I would not recommend is that fake crab meat. Don't think that would taste too good.

Blue cheese sounds like the perfect flavor with crab! I love the pretty flecks of colors in the cakes too. I'll have to give these a try!

I would totally eat this as a main meal! I love crab cakes and blue cheese!

this look fab, what a great idea to add cheese, I write for an Alaskan seafood company would you like these to be featured with a link back to you?
