Thai Coconut Crab Cakes
Thai Coconut Crab Cakes With Avocado And Mango Salsa
If you like crab cakes and love the tastes of Southeast Asia you will love these crab cakes. We add the delicious taste of toasted coconut to these crab cakes with a distinctly Southeast Asian flavor. You will want to toast your crab cakes by spreading your coconut in a baking pan or cookie sheet and toast it in a 350 degree oven until the coconut is golden brown. You will also need a bottle of Asian Fish Sauce from the Asian Foods section at your local supermarket to give these Thai Coconut Crab Cakes their distinctly Southeast Asian Flavor.
When you buy your can of crab meat be sure to go through it carefully to make sure there are no shell fragments in it. The fresh cracked crab sold in the seafood section of most supermarkets is what I like to use but you can also use the canned crab found in the canned meats section of your local supermarket.
