If you’re a fan of crab cakes, you’ve come to the right place. Since my dad’s office is based in Greenville, South Carolina, he travels to the city often – but of course not now, due to COVID-19. This recipe is just slightly altered from one of our family’s favorite restaurants in Greenville called Soby’s. And boy, do they know how to make a decadent crab cake! I can’t wait for you to try this recipe and share it with your friends and family.
Sorry SpongeBob, but this crab appetizer will put your renowned krabby patties to shame. Its got all the delicious flavor with a gourmet twist. The variety of colors and textures in this dish really make it stand out. Your guests will get the impression that you slaved over this recipe, when in reality, it will only take you about 20 minutes.
Now I wouldn’t say I’m a seafood fanatic in the least bit, but the crab in this appetizer is so subtle that I can barely tell I’m eating it. However, I’m sure the avocado, lime juice and garlic helps mask the fishy flavor that I typically despise.
This is the type of recipe that you can alter to your liking. If you aren’t a big tomato fan, don’t put as much in the mixture. If you love avocado (like me), feel free to add more. After all, this appetizer is basically an elevated version of guacamole. Since I doubled the recipe, be sure to add more of the other ingredients accordingly.
