How to Make Crab Cakes


  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed or vegetable oil
  • 2 1/4 pounds skinless salmon fillet, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 16 six-inch metal skewers, or wooden skewers soaked in water for 1 hour
  • Salt
  • Pepper

How to make this recipe

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the maple syrup with the lemon juice, both mustards and 1 tablespoon of the grapeseed oil.

  2. Thread the salmon onto skewers and season all over with salt and pepper. In a large cast-iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil until shimmering. Add half of the skewers and cook over moderate heat until browned on the bottom, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the skewers and cook, basting with the mustard glaze and turning occasionally, until glazed and nearly cooked through, about 5 minutes total. Repeat with the remaining oil and skewers. Transfer to a platter and serve right away.

Suggested Pairing

Red Beaujolais is a perfect match for meaty fish like salmon because it has the acidity of a white wine but the berried fruit character of a red.
