Crab cakes with bacon…enough said. Oh, and there’s a great spicy dipping sauce.


2 cans (120g ea.) CLOVER LEAF® Chunk Crabmeat or Crabmeat with 15% Legmeat, drained and rinsed
8 slices Bacon, finely chopped
2 tbsp (30 ml) Olive oil
½ cup Red bell pepper, finely chopped
¼ cup Red onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp Garlic cloves, minced
1 cup Breadcrumbs
¼ tsp Cayenne pepper
3 tbsp Lemon juice, fresh
1 tbsp Parsley
½ cup Mayonnaise
2-4 tbsp Sriracha
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


  1. In a pan over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Set aside cooked bacon and remove all, but 2 tablespoons bacon grease.
  2. To bacon grease in pan, add olive oil, bell pepper, onion and garlic and sauté until tender, for about 5 minutes. Let cool.
  3. In a large bowl use hands to mix bacon, cooked pepper mix, crab, breadcrumbs, cayenne, lemon juice and parsley.
  4. Turn oven on to broil and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Roll crab mix into 1 tablespoon sized balls and press to form crab cakes about 1.5 inch diameter and ½ inch thick.
  6. Place cakes on parchment and broil 2-4 minutes on each side until golden.
  7. Meanwhile combine mayo, sriracha and Worcestershire sauce, and chill until ready to serve.
  8. Serve crab cakes with dip.
