Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl add the cream cheese and microwave for 10-15 seconds.
  2. Then add in the mozzarella cheese and egg and give everything a good mix. You can use any cheese you like.
  3. Season with Old Bay seasoning and add in the chives.
  4. Finally add the crab meat and season with a bit of salt and pepper
  5. Give everything a good mix and your crab mix is ready.
  6. Now shape the crab cakes using either a ring mold, a cookie cutter or your hands.
  7. Some people like to use a tray with parchment paper to keep the crab cakes on but I just use regular plates.
  8. Then pop it in the fridge to chill for 10 minutes.
  9. Heat the olive oil in a pan and once hot add in the crab cakes.
  10. You want to keep the heat medium low/medium so you don’t cook the outside too fast.
  11. Allow each side to cook for 3-4 minutes. Once one side is cooked flip it over and finish cooking.
  12. Use a nice non stick pan since the cheese will melt and form a crust. If you use any other pan make sure it’s well seasoned and you might want to add a touch more oil
  13. For the sauce just mix everything in a bowl and it’s ready.
  14. Serve the crab cakes with the dipping sauce on a bed of greens. I’d recommend either peppery microgreens or something like watercress. Even arugula/rocket lettuce will work. You can dress it with some lemon and olive oil.
