The Gentle Chef Vegan Maryland Crab’less Cakes

vegan-fishcakes

After seeing someone posting this on one of the vegan Facebook groups I’m a member of, I really wanted to make them. There’s quite a lot to it – it’s not something you’re going to whip up in a couple of minutes – but it’s mostly seasonings and the method isn’t difficult at all.

I don’t think we can get Old Bay Seasoning here in the UK, so I found this recipe on the internet which can be made up and used in its place:

Old Bay Seasoning

2.5 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp salt
2 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp cayenne
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp thyme

I halved the recipe for the crab’less cakes, cooked two of them, and froze the rest. The nori sheets give it the ‘fishy’ taste and they make a great alternative to the usual ‘meaty’ stuff.

You can find the recipe for the Gentle Chef Maryland Crab’less Cakes on his website.

    1. I’d never heard of them either, but apparently they’re “a vegetable harvested from the inner core and growing bud of certain palm trees”. I got mine in Tesco in a Green Giant tin, so if Green Giant make them, I assume they’re more popular than I thought?
