We've taken the frying and fuss out of crab cakes by shaping and baking them in muffin tins. For the best taste, look for pasteurized crabmeat in the refrigerator case at your market's fish counter, a better choice than canned varieties. Make It a Meal: Try these cakes with some tangy tartar sauce and coleslaw.

Recipe Ingredients for Mini-Tin Crab Cakes

1 pound crabmeat
2 cups fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs
1/2 red bell pepper, minced
3 scallions, sliced
2 servings reduced-fat mayonnaise (1/4 c)
2 large eggs
1 large egg white
10 dashes hot sauce, such as
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Recipe Directions for Mini-Tin Crab Cakes

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Generously coat a 12-cup nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray.

  2. Mix crab, breadcrumbs, bell pepper, scallions, mayonnaise, eggs, egg white, hot sauce, celery salt and pepper in a large bowl until well combined. Divide mixture evenly among muffin cups. Bake until crispy and cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes.

  3. To make fresh breadcrumbs: Trim crusts from firm sandwich bread. Tear bread into pieces and process in a food processor until a coarse crumb forms. One slice of bread makes about 1/3 cup crumbs.
