About the author


My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Crab Cakes Recipe


Potato Chip Crab Cakes
Ingredients for 9 crab cakes

Serving size for macronutrients & calories listed below – 1 crab cake

  • 1lb fresh crab meat
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons low calorie mayo (I use olive oil mayo)
  • 1 tablespoon mustard (or Dijon if you’re fancy)
  • 2 scallions (green onions), chopped
  • 1 tablespoon The Fit Cook Everyday blend
    • SUB: 2 teaspoons granulated garlic + 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon The Fit Cook Sea blend
    • SUB: 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup (~2oz) crushed baked potato chips OR kettle chips
  • pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil (OR grapeseed oil, coconut oil)
  • Sauce (OPTIONAL – not included in macronutrient count)
    • 1/2 cup low calorie olive oil mayo or reduced fat mayo
    • 3 tablespoons Sriracha
  • Garnish
    • flake salt & pepper
  1. Set oven to 300F.
  2. In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the crab cakes.  Mix together thoroughly with a spatula.  If the mixture is too wet, add tablespoons of oat (or your choice of) flour until the batter sticks together by itself.  If the mixture is too dry, simple add a lightly beaten egg or egg white.
  3. Use an ice cream scoop to keep the patties roughly the same size.  Roll them into a golf-ball sized ball, then lightly flatten to create a medallion.
  4. Set a nonstick skillet on medium high heat, and once hot, add avocado oil.  Add 2 – 3 cakes to the skillet.  Cook on each side for 2 -3 minutes, or until each side is golden brown.  Then place on a baking tray.  Repeat until all patties have been made.
  5. Place the baking tray in the oven for 6 – 8 minutes while you prepare the sauce (and clean up the kitchen).
  6. Prepare the sauce.  Once finished with the final baking,  garnish with flake sea salt & enjoy!
