We love seafood at my house. Living in Japan makes seafood quite easy to get, but crab is not always easy to find. And fresh crab can be pretty pricey when you are feeding a large group, so I came up with this recipe that tastes like a million bucks, but it won’t require a trip to the ATM before you pick up the ingredients. It does require some fresh crab and scallops, but the surimi and tuna will stretch out the taste of the fresh seafood while not breaking the bank.
When you bite into this yummy cake it will make you feel like you are dining at a high end seafood restaurant and not at your dining room table. This soft and delicious seafood cake tastes very crabby! The texture is soft because it uses fresh softened bread as a binding ingredient rather than panko or bread crumbs. It’s baked and not fried, which makes it a great choice if you are counting calories!
Serve it up with fresh lemon and tartar sauce.
