Ingredients

For the crab cakes:

  • 1 Cup ground Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal, divided
  • 1 Pound crabmeat
  • 1/3 Cup green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup shallots, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 Cups plain panko crumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil, for frying, or more as needed

For the sriracha-lime mayonnaise:

  • 6 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 Teaspoons sriracha sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon grated lime zest

Directions

For the crab cakes:

In a food processor, grind cereal into a fine powder. In a large bowl, mix together crabmeat, green onion, shallots, lime juice, mayonnaise, 3/4 cup of the ground cereal, salt and pepper. Combine panko crumbs and remaining 1/4 cup of ground cereal in a shallow bowl, flour in another bowl, and beaten eggs in a third bowl. Form crab mixture into cakes, using 1/4 cup measure for each. Dust crab cakes with flour, coat with beaten egg, then coat with panko and cereal mixture. Place each cake on a baking sheet.

Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook crab cakes until crisp, about 4-5 minutes per side, adding more vegetable oil as needed. Transfer cakes to paper towels to drain.

For the sriracha-lime mayonnaise:

Stir together all ingredients and serve with crab cakes.
