Crab Cakes


  1. Combine the crab, eggs, shallots, coconut milk, mayonnaise, and Savory Spice Blend in a small mixing bowl. As you form the cakes, if the mixture is too runny squeeze out some of the liquid.  Pat the cakes in a shallow bowl of coconut flour to coat well. Make the cakes any size you prefer.  Smaller cakes will be easier to flip.
  2. In a large pan over medium heat, melt enough coconut oil to create a layer about ¼-inch deep.  Gently place the cakes in pan and make sure the cakes don’t touch each other.  Allow the patties to brown on one side before flipping, and cook/brown the other side.
  3.  Serve warm or cold.

TIP: Make this recipe with either salmon or tuna. 



  1. In the container of a blender, combine the egg yolks, mustard, lemon juice, cayenne and hot pepper sauce. Cover, and blend for about 5-10 seconds.
  2. Place the grass fed butter in a glass measuring cup. Heat butter in the microwave for about 1 minute, or until completely melt and hot. Set the blender on high speed, and pour the butter into the egg yolk mixture in a thin stream. It should thicken almost immediately. Keep the sauce warm until serving by placing the blender container in a pan of hot tap water. 

*Take Sliced Tomato and place over top of Crab Cake. Then add Poached Eggs on top. Finally drizzle Hollandaise to taste. May be served with Avocado.
