Keto crab cakes, full of New Orleans flavor
These Keto Crab Cakes are a low carb nod to one of my favorite cities in the world - New Orleans! So, I felt it was only fitting to make sure they included the Cajun Holy Trinity - onions, celery, and bell pepper.
How to make keto crab cakes:
Loaded with lump crab meat, these low carb crab cakes are perfectly crispy and juicy at the same time. Before I made this recipe, I was on the hunt for a good keto crab cake and I just wasn't able to find one. SO, I just made my own!
Not only are these keto crab cakes perfectly high in fat and low in carbs, but they are also gluten free. Instead of using breadcrumbs or panko like a traditional crab cake might call for, I made these with crushed pork rinds.
Can you make gluten free crab cakes?
Crab cakes are one of those appetizers that my eyes naturally gravitate toward on a menu. However, it can be hard to find gluten-free keto crab cakes on a restaurant menu. Many of them contain bread crumbs, panko or something of the sort as a binding agent. In this recipe I took care of that problem and as a low carb substitute for breadcrumbs, I used crushed pork rinds to hold it all together. You can’t taste them, and they play the part of bread crumbs perfectly.
Before you say "Ewwww" and click away from this page, I promise, promise, promise that you won't taste them at all. Not only do they help bind these keto crab cakes together, but they keep them from drying out as well. Now you can have your crab cakes and eat them, too!
