Deviled Crab Cakes recipe

These crab cakes are slightly spicy, a little bit smokey, and very devilish. A great way to experience more types of crab cakes. Makes 6 cakes.


  • 1/2 cup small chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup small chopped bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup small chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 small jar roasted red peppers, chopped small
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound crab
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 egg egg
  • 1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs, divided
  • vegetable oil, as needed for frying


  1. In a small saute pan over medium heat melt the butter and add the onion, bell pepper, and celery. Cook until softened, about 4 minutes. Let cool.

  2. In a large bowl toss together the roasted peppers, paprika, cayenne, salt, crab, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, egg, 1/2 cup of the breadcrumbs, and the sauteed vegetables.

  3. Form the crab mixture into cakes and coat with the remaining breadcrumbs.

  4. In a large saute pan heat 1/4 inch oil over medium-high heat. Place the cakes into the oil and cook until they are browned and crisp, about 4 minutes on each side.

  5. Move the cakes to a paper towel lined plate and serve hot.
