These Whole30 Crab Cakes with Tartar Sauce are perfect for an easy weeknight meal. The homemade tartar sauce makes the perfect topping!
There are so many awesome choices when it comes to what to serve with your crab cakes. If you are wanting to keep your meal Whole30 or Paleo, serving these with a side salad or roasted asparagus is my favorite. If you aren’t doing a Whole30 then I love to serve these with a side of rice.
Yes! Crab is Whole30 compliant, which makes me one happy girl. You have to make sure you read your labels when trying to find a Whole30 compliant crab in a can. This is the brand I use and found them at Whole Foods.
Most of the time when your crab cakes fall apart it is because you don’t have a balance between your wet and dry ingredients. If you feel your mixture is too dry then add a little extra mayo. If you feel like your mixture is too wet, then add some more almond flour.
First, you will need to ring out as much moisture from the crab meat as you can. I like to line a few paper towels together and use them to squeeze out the water from the crab meat.
Next you will dice onion and bell pepper and add it to a bowl with the crab meat.
In a small bowl you will whisk together Whole30 compliant mayo and 1 egg. This is what helps bind the crab cakes together.
Add the mayo and egg mixture to the bowl then add almond flour, garlic powder, parsley, dill, salt, and pepper.
Mix everything together and form into 4 patties. Heat avocado oil in a pan then add the crab cakes to the pan.
Cook the crab cakes for 4-5 minutes a side.
For the tartar sauce, mix together Whole30 compliant mayo, lemon juice, minced garlic, relish, and pepper.
