Spicy Thai Chili Garlic Crab Cakes


Give your Crab Cakes a POP of BOLD flavor with Yai’s Thai Chili Garlic Hot Sauce!   

Spicy Thai Chili Garlic Crab Cakes


  • 1 lb. crab 
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (or veganaise/other mayo substitute)
  • 2-4 tsp Yai’s Thai Chili Garlic Hot Sauce
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs (or almond flour substitute)
  • 1.5 tbsp Old Bay Seasoning

Make It:

  1. Mix all ingredients together gently - be careful not to stir too hard, you'll want to make sure there are good-sized chunks of crab meat in your cake and not just mush.
  2. Once everything is mixed together, form the ingredients into your desired size - this should yield about 9 medium-sized patties
  3. Place the formed patties in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to help them firm up
  4. Heat your choice of oil over medium heat and place 3-4 patties gently in the oil - try to avoid crowding the pan too much
  5. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side - you should have a golden brown crust on each side
  6. Take the crab cakes out of the pan and place them on a paper towel to drain for a minute or two
  7. Top with cilantro or green onions for that pop of color and you're ready to serve!

Tip: Mix a couple tablespoons of Yai's Thai Chili Garlic Sauce with 1/4 cup of mayo for a spicy dipping sauce similar to a Remoulade - the more Yai's, the spicier it will be!
