These are the light, crispy crab cakes you'd expect from a little seaside café on the boardwalk. Sweet, briny crabmeat is mixed with chopped chives and scallions and a touch of jalapeño. Bake or pan-fry until crispy on both sides and cooked through the center. Serve on a bun or garnish with your favorite sauce — these convenient patties are delicious with anything from a lemony aioli or tarragon tartar sauce to a zippy guacamole or mango salsa.

Stovetop to Oven (recommended): Heat an oven-proof sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add about 1/4 inch of oil, or enough to coat the bottom of the pan well. When oil is hot, carefully place crab cakes in pan and fry for about 4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Transfer pan to pre-heated 400°F oven and cook for an additional 5-6 minutes, or until an internal temperature of 165°F is reached. Allow crab cakes to rest on dry paper towel before serving, to absorb excess oil.
Oven: Preheat oven to 400°F. Place crab cakes on a baking sheet and cook on middle rack for about 20 minutes. Carefully flip cakes over and continue cooking until an internal temperature of 165°F is reached, about 15-20 additional minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
