Crab Cakes With Mango Chutney Recipe

Crab Cakes: In a large bowl, whisk mayonnaise, egg, fish sauce, ginger, cilantro, sesame oil, jalapeño, salt, and lime zest then, whisk in scallion. Add crabmeat and stir to coat, coarsely breaking apart the crabmeat, leaving small chunks. Fold in panko. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Using about 1/3 cup crab mixture each, shape into 12 (3/4"-thick) crab cakes.

Preheat oven to 200°. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, add 3 Tbsp. canola oil and 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, and heat until hot but not smoking. Fry 6 crab cakes until crisp and golden, about 2 minutes per side, adjusting heat as needed to brown evenly without scorching. Transfer to a parchment paper–lined baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Wipe out skillet and repeat with remaining canola oil, remaining butter, and remaining 6 crab cakes. To serve, place 2 cakes on each of 6 plates and spoon mango chutney over and alongside. Top each with English cucumber, thinly sliced and cut into matchsticks (from 1/2 cucumber) garnish with cilantro sprigs and flaky sea salt.

Mango Chutney: Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add sugar and cook without stirring, tilting the pan as needed to cook evenly, until it melts into an amber caramel, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in mango, then rice wine vinegar and lime juice. Return to medium heat and stir until mango is translucent and caramel is dissolved and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool. Season to taste with kosher salt.

You can make the chutney up to a week ahead and assemble the crab cakes up to eight hours before you’re ready to cook them. Both should be covered and refrigerated.

Prep Tips

1) Pan-Fried vs Oven Baked. I do ‘not’ recommend trying to bake these in the oven. The crisp outside and super moist inside is a big part of what I love about these patties, and you just won’t get the same crispness oven baking them, while the inside is much more prone to drying out in the oven. A quick sear in the pan is all these need, and it does make a huge difference.

2) Why no Mustard or Worcestershire? My recipe opts for paprika, red pepper, and fresh lemon juice to add spice and ‘bite’ as opposed to the more traditional Mustard-Worcestershire-Hot Sauce combo that most “cocktail style” crab cakes opt for. In my opinion, this is more ‘neutral’ method for achieving largely the same effect, while opting out of the ‘beefy’ flavor that Worcestershire tends to add. However, as always, feel free to experiment or even add on mustard and Worcestershire later if you prefer.

FAQs and Expert Tips

Here are some of my shrimp purchasing tips:

  • 1. Buy Frozen. Since I live in a landlocked state without access to freshly caught shrimp, I prefer to buy shrimp frozen. Since it’s flash-frozen promptly after being caught, it is often better quality (for a better price) than what’s sitting in the seafood case. Buying frozen also gives you greater control over the defrosting process, since you can cook them immediately afterwards.
  • 2. Look for raw (not precooked) shrimp that is deveined and either EZ-peel or already peeled. Deveining shrimp is a tedious, rather unsettling task, if you ask me! Also, for reference, raw shrimp is always gray-ish white, while cooked shrimp is pink.

I really thought these were great. I doubled the recipe and did as others suggested and added chopped scallions along with the cilantro. I cut back on the Asian fish sauce slightly in case it was too salty. One thing I did differently: I used a 14oz. can of lump crabmeat and 12 oz. of COOKED shrimp! I had them in my freezer and found them to be a little tough on their own so chopped they worked just fine. I did add one egg and I used the Panko crumbs. Will definitely make these again.

I love this recipe and use it as a goto crab cake recipe. I've used both the fresh breadcrumbs as well as panko and either work well. Serve it with a dollop of plum or hoisin sauce. Standard crab cakes don't hold a candle to these.

Excellent - my go to recipe for crab cakes. You must let them sit for an hour in refirgerator before you make into patties or they will fall apart.

My husband loves Asian food, and He enjoys seafood second to the Asian. This was not impressive at all. If you want a crab cake, make one. If you want Asian. make something other than this dish.

I've made these several times as appetizers. I shape them as big as a circle between my thumb and index finger. Right before I serve them, I sprinkle each cake with just a bit of rice wine vinegar and serve them on a bed of arugula

To Kristen in RI - I've had the same problem with crab cakes before, until I tried this little trick. Make your crab cakes, and then refrigerate them for about an hour before frying. Now mine all stay intact. Good luck! Oh, excellent recipe. Used panko as a sub.

Mine totally fell apart. WHY? so frustrating, there was nothing but a big plate of crab/shrimp mush that tasted pretty good, but a bit salty. I was so excited to make these too. I used panko and I cooked shrimp ahead, which was probably wrong I'm a crab cake novice. any thoughts on why they wouldn't stay together? Suggestions?

De-lish! Will definitely make this again. Here's what I did with it: 1. Used thawed, previously frozen raw prawns, well chopped. 2. Used mayo sparingly, just to bind ingredients. 3. Used chopped fresh basil instead of cilantro. 4. Drizzled finished cakes with hot wasabe-sesame oil that we found in Hawaii. 5. Used Panko crumbs. the VERY BEST for crispy fried fish! 6. Served on a romaine salad tossed with a light vinegarette. Very good stuff!

Loved this recipe. I used fish sauce, wasabi mao and "Bookbinders" bread crumbs that are seasoned with lemon. Other than that followed the recipe and it was a big hit! Would give it 3 1/2 forks if I could.

These are my first attempt at crab cakes, and I was very impressed. I used the panko crumbs like others suggested, and I baked them instead of frying. They were delicious! I loved the fact that the recipe used shrimp as filler because so often crab cakes aren't meaty enough. I also added scallions per others suggestions. Another keeper!

This was really good, I think using shrimp to bulk up crabcakes is helpful(where I live, a jar of fresh crabmeat costs 30 dollars!)I did use scallions instead of cilantro, I added an egg, and I cooked these in the oven drizzeled with peanut oil for 20 minutes instead of pan frying them(they were too mushy after I added the egg) They were good with a wababi ginger aioli.

This recipe always gets rave reviews! The only changes I have made are to substitute panko breadcrumbs and to add a touch of wasabi sauce to the mixture. It is also tasty when using shrimp instead of crab. This one is a keeper!

Add more cilantro and ginger to the recipe to provide greater up-front flavor. Consider adding scallions to the recipe, as well.

I expected this recipe to be a loser but it turned out unbelievably good. I used fish sauce instead of soy. My only change was to add a beaten egg as suggested by another reviewer. I made no attempt to form them as regular crab cakes but simply used a large spoon to drop the mixture on the bread crumbs. Then I flipped each cake over to cover both sides and carefully transferred them to the skillet. They were wonderful.

I left out the cilantro, added ground red chile and one egg. I didn't think they were going to hold together, but they fried up nicely. Very good flavor.

I found this crab cake to be very good, but I am from Maryland where crab cakes reign, so it was not my favorite recipe, nor would I make it again. If you have never had a Maryland crab cake, this is an excellent recipe.

Sorrreee. must be something wrong here. a lot of trouble for minimum reward. much too salty (and I like salt)and couldn't even get through one. Normally love Bon Appetit recipes but this one didn't do it.

Made this over Christmas holidays for out of town guests, got RAVES about good it was!(used home-made garlic mayo)

These were the best shrimp/crab cakes I've ever had. After making and eating these, you'll cringe every time you see them on restaurant's menu, ⟊use you'll know you can do better.

I love this recipe. I've made them four times, and they're a big hit everytime.

Try it this way. Omit the fish or soy sauce and add 1 tbl chopped fermented black beans and 1 tsp red chili paste to taste. Serve with pineapple mango salsa.Awesome!

Made it with 100% shrimp. My wife was impressed with how well it came out. Will try with a shrimp / crab mix next time.

I didn't have both crab and shrimp on the same day, so I made it once with all crab and once with all shrimp. The shrimp was superb - Iɽ use a bit more of the fish sauce. The crab flavor was muted by the treatment.

These are very tasty crab cakes. But why use French bread crumbs in an asian style food? I used Panko bread crumbs with excellent results. They are available at most well stocked grocery stores and asian markets.

This is a relatively easy, extremely tasty and impressive dish. We used light/fat-free mayonnaise. Also, we cut the amount of fish sauce in half, to 1 teaspoon. Fresh crab was used instead of canned. We made fresh breadcrumbs using our Cuisinart. fresh breadcrumbs make the crab cakes very light!


1. To make the gastrique, heat a medium-heavy saucepan over medium heat for two minutes. Add the sugar and cook without stirring, tilting the pan as needed so that the sugar cooks evenly, for about five minutes, or until it melts into an amber caramel. Do not stir or the caramel will crystallise. Remove from the heat and stir in the mango (the caramel will seize), then the rice vinegar and lime juice. Return to medium heat and stir constantly for about five minutes, or until the mango is translucent and the caramel is dissolved and syrupy. Transfer to a bowl and let cool. Season with salt.

2. To prepare the crab cakes, in a large bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, egg, fish sauce, ginger, coriander, sesame oil, chilli, salt and lime zest together, then whisk in the spring onions. Add the crabmeat and stir to coat, coarsely breaking apart the crabmeat, leaving small whole chunks in the mixture. Fold in the crumbs. Cover and refrigerate the crab mixture for 30 minutes so that the mixture is easier to form.

3. Using about a third of a cup of the crab mixture for each cake, shape into 12 x 2cm-thick crab cakes and place on a baking tray.

4. To cook the crab cakes, preheat the oven to 95C or 75C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with paper towels. Heat a large non-stick saute pan over medium-high heat. Add three tablespoons of the canola oil and two tablespoons of the butter and heat until hot but not smoking. Working in two batches, fry six crab cakes for about two minutes on each side, or until crisp and golden, adjusting the heat as needed to brown evenly without scorching. Transfer to the baking tray and keep warm in the oven. Wipe out the pan with paper towels and repeat with the remaining canola oil, butter, and six crab cakes.

5. To serve, place two crab cakes on each plate. Spoon some of the mango gastrique over and alongside the crab cakes. Top each with the cucumber and garnish with the coriander sprigs and sea salt.

The mango gastrique can be made up to one week ahead. The crab cakes can be made to step 3, up to eight hours ahead, covered and refrigerated.
