  • 4 Scallions,  chopped fine

  • 2 Tbsp. Fat free yogurt
  • ¼ cup Fresh parsley
  • 1 Lemon, juiced
  • 16 oz. Premium lump crab meat, picked free of shells

  • cooking spray


  • In a large bowl, combine corn, crushed crackers, eggs, scallions, pepper, mayo, yogurt, parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • Mix well, then fold in crab meat, careful not to over mix so the crab remains in large chunks.
  • Gently shape into 8 patties using a 1/2 cup measuring cup.
  • Chill in the refrigerator at least 1 hour before baking.
  • Preheat oven to 425F. Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Bake about 24 to 28 minutes turning halfway, or until golden brown.

Air Fryer

  • Air fry, in batches 370F until the edges are golden, about 10 to 12 minutes turning halfway.


To make the crab cakes hold together is to refrigerate them before baking
