Seriously addictive Low Syn Thai Crab Cakes for a perfect light meal or appetizer.
This yummy recipe that was previously published on Slimming Eats has been improved and updated
I love making this low syn Thai Crab cakes for an easy and quick lunch, they are perfect just as they are or served with a yummy salad or even as a side to some soup instead of bread.
Using just a handful of ingredients, they are super easy to make, so great for quick meals in the week or weekend.
Fresh crab, of course, is always the best option for these, as it has a much nicer flavour, but you can use canned if you can't get hold of any. Just make sure you really drain the liquid, otherwise, they may not bind together very well.
Don't fancy crab, try replacing with another fish of your choosing, like salmon or tuna or even white fish.

HOW CAN I ADD A ⅓ SPEED FOODS TO THESE LOW SYN THAI CRAB CAKES?
I served mine alongside some salad and baby cucumber, but these would pair well with all kinds of speedy sides and if you serve alongside some soup, then you can easily combine a load of speed foods into your meal that way.
These low syn Thai Crab Cakes are amazing served alongside a little dipping bowl of Thai Sweet Chill Sauce too, if you have a few extra syn spare, Yum!!
This recipe is also perfect for freezing if you are lucky enough to have any leftovers of course. If you want some to freeze, I just place in between small squares of greaseproof paper and then pop in a ziplock bag, that way they don't stick together and they are easy to take out one or two as needed.
To heat up, I just pop in the oven and bake until heated through.
