I’m so excited to be able to share this recipe from 175 Best Babycakes Cake Pops Maker Recipes. It’s one of the savory recipes that has me totally rethinking my Babycakes and cake ball avoidance (I wrote about it here: Review: 175 Best Babycakes Cake Pops Maker Recipes Cookbook).
While I don’t eat crab because I’m a vegetarian, I see this recipe as a jumping off point to many more tidbits that I will be able to eat, plus it will make a great appetizer for my husband. I love the Wasabi Mayo Sauce recipe and look forward to trying this very soon!
Don’t have a Babycakes™ Cake Pop Maker (CP-12)? Me either, but I’m considering buying one. Until then, these could be made in the oven as well. Just adjust the time and bake at a medium oven (350-375).
Recipe: Thai Crab Bites
Summary: Served with Wasabi Mayo Sauce, these Asian-inspired crab bites make a fantastic appetizer. Wasabi, a Japanese horseradish, adds great flavor to this sharp, spicy mayonnaise
Bite Tips: If you don’t have buttery crackers on hand, you can substitute 1/4 cup (60 mL) more panko bread crumbs, saltine cracker crumbs or dry bread crumbs. You can use a 6-oz (175 g) can of lump crabmeat, drained, for the crabmeat. In step 2, use a small scoop (one that holds about 1 tbsp/15 mL) to spoon out just the right amount of the crab mixture, then lightly shape the mixture into a ball with your hands.
Wasabi Mayo Tip: You can use wasabi powder instead of prepared wasabi in this recipe. In a small bowl, combine 2 tbsp (30 mL) wasabi powder and 1-1/2 tbsp (22 mL) cold water until well blended. Let stand for 10 minutes or until wasabi powder has dissolved. Proceed with the recipe.
