Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

This pescatarian recipe serves 3 and costs $2.92 per serving. This recipe from Foodista requires old bay seasoning, saltine crackers, mayonnaise, and very butter. Not a lot of people made this recipe, and 1 would say it hit the spot. It works well as a reasonably priced hor d'oeuvre. With a spoonacular score of 65%, this dish is solid.

Crab works really well with Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Riesling. Chilled crab tastes great with pinot grigio. Warm crab (especially with butter) can be matched with a buttery Chardonnay or a crisp fruity Riesling. The Diamond Collection Chardonnay with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 16 dollars per bottle.

Diamond Collection Chardonnay

Vibrant golden yellow in appearance, our Diamond Collection Chardonnay offers flavors of pineapple, peach and tangerine.

Instructions

Place all of the ingredients, except the butter, in a large bowl. With a fork, very gently toss the ingredients together until just blended being careful to avoid breaking up the crabmeat too much. Gently form into 6 slightly rounded cakes and place on a non-stick baking sheet (non-stick aluminum foil works great here). This can be done up to a day in advance and refrigerated, covered, until ready to cook. Preheat broiler on its lowest setting. Gently spread softened butter on each cake and broil until golden brown and hot throughout. Let sit for 5-10 minutes minutes before carefully removing the cakes from the baking sheet with a spatula

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, make sure your crackers (and all other ingredients) is truly gluten free.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • In a pinch you can make your own Old Bay seasoning at home. Typical ingredients include celery salt, bay leaves, paprika, dry mustard, a bit of nutmeg, ground ginger, cloves, cardamom, and of course, salt and pepper. Experiment with whichever spices and herbs you have on hand until you find a ratio you like.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.
