A gluten-free alternative to regular crab cake recipes, with a spicy twist. What I love about these is that it can easily be modified to use canned tuna (I like the water version), or canned salmon, or even fresh, canned crab. I like to make extra so I have them handy for breakfast or lunch the next day, they hold up well!
Adjust the spicy to your liking and for extra healthy fat, top with avocado slices and a dash of your favorite hot sauce (I LOVE Frank’s!).
They can be made ahead and eaten cold or rewarmed in a pan at medium heat.
