Crab cakes are often served with lemon wedges, tartar sauce, or just by themselves, but in the following recipe the crab cakes are served on a bed of salad leaves with some chili sauce. The crab cakes themselves are spiced up with chili sauce in the actual crab cake mixture, and they are also flavored with cilantro. The finished crab cakes are served with salad leaves which contrast nicely with the spicy flavor in the crab cakes, along with some extra chili sauce. Serve the extra sauce on the side to people can spice their own meal up as much as they want.

This crab cake salad makes an indulgent lunch or a flavorful appetizer. You can even serve it for dinner if you fancy something lighter than usual. Homemade crab cakes are so much nicer than anything you can buy readymade from the store. These crab cakes are really flavorful and adding a tasty mixed leaf salad to go with them offers a nutritious meal which is good for you as well as flavorful.

If you are not keen on the spicy element then of course you can omit the chili sauce from the recipe and offer something like a lemon mayonnaise on the side instead, or even classic tartar sauce.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
