Crab cake sliders are a delicious way to have a taste of the beach any time right at home. Mini crab cakes sit on top of soft buns and are topped with a hearty helping of crunchy coleslaw for a dinner or lunch you'll love.
Servings: 12 sliders
- 1 lb lump crab meat
- 1 tbsp chopped Italian parsley
- pinch red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp minced red onion
- 1/4 cup seasoned brea crumbs
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
- dash Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
For The Coleslaw Mix
- 1 12 oz bag coleslaw mix
- 3/4-1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 heaping tsp sugar
- salt & pepper to taste
Making The Crab Cake Patties
Add all of the wet ingredient to a large mixing bowl, whisk together until evenly combined.
Add the remaining ingredients and toss just until combined- trying not to break up the crab meat too much along the way.
Let the crab cake mixture rest in the bowl for 5-10 minutes, then form it into 8 uniform patties.
Lightly spray a 9x13" baking dish with non stick spray, adding the patties to it. Bake them at 350° for roughly 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven, and set aside.
Making The Slaw
Add all of the ingredients to a separate, large mixing bowl and toss until evenly combined.
Cover and chill, until ready to use.
Assembling The Crab Cake Sliders
Add the cooked crab cakes to soft buns, and top each with a hearty dollop of the prepared coleslaw.
Top with top buns, and serve with slices tomatoes, green leaf lettuce, and thinly sliced red onions on the side for garnish.
- The crab cake mixture may seam a bit moist, and that's ok!
- Don't overmix once you add the crab meat to the mix. You want big pieces of crab meat running throughout.
- The lemon juice is key. It adds a lot of extra freshness to the recipe.
- Don't like coleslaw? You can skip adding it if you prefer.
