Dairy Free Soy Free Baked Crab Cakes With Yummy Sauce

UPDATE: Please make sure to double check ingredients each time you buy. I hope I never overlook anything but it’s possible and ingredients can change. A lot of my posts are over two years old and since I have gone back dairy soy free I have discovered a few items I use to buy all the time that now have soy in them.

Crab Cakes:


1 pound Crab Meat
2 large Eggs
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce (I use Bi-Lo Southern Homes Brand)
1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs (I use Emeril's original)
4 tablespoons Mayonnaise (here is a link to my recipe for Homemade Dairy Soy Free Mayonnaise )
1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard (I use French's)
Old Bay Seasoning to taste
1 Lemon
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
less than 1 tablespoon Green Onions (sliced thin)
1 Cup Coconut Oil (Or butter if you are not dairy soy free)

Preheat oven to 375F.

Place crab meat into bowl, and crack 2 eggs into same bowl. Season mixture with old bay, worcestershire sauce, green onions, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, bread crumbs, juice of 1/2 lemon and olive oil. Knead mixture in bowl.

Melt coconut oil into baking pan of your choice.

Form 8 to 12 large crab cakes (or around 30 crab bites) and place into baking pan, and put in oven. After 10 minutes, open oven, tilt pan to accumulate melted coconut oil, and baste crab cakes with coconut oil. Close oven, cook 10 more minutes, baste and repeat until top of cakes are golden brown.

Approximate cooking time is 25 minutes. Top cake with "Yummy" sauce.

Original Recipe: Crab Cakes

Yummy Sauce:


Old Bay Seasoning
4 tablespoons Mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
2 tablespoons BBQ Sauce (check for dairy & soy, I use Garland Jack's Secret Six Hickory Spice BBQ. Be careful not all Garland Jack's flavors are dairy soy free)
Lemon Juice


Mix all ingredients and sprinkle old bay seasoning. Stir until you reach a rich, deep pinkish color. Add "Extra" BBQ sauce, mayonnaise, or Dijon if desired. Just play with it till you like the taste.

Original Recipe: Me Time Sauce

*Be careful with all your ingredients double check them for soy. Even check the crab meat, get real crab almost all imitation crab meat has soy.

*If you use a glass baking dish read all care instructions, and never broil food in them or place on cold surface out of hot oven.
