Never skip on your protein. Seafood is a good source of protein and low in calories. This recipe cuts the carbs and fats from regular crab cakes but with all the taste.


1 slightly beaten egg

1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt

2 tablespoons reduced-calorie mayonnaise or salad dressing

1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon prepared mustard

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 pound crabmeat, drained, flaked, and cartilage removed

1/3 cup finely crushed saltine crackers

Nonstick spray coating

1 medium tomato, sliced

Lemon wedges (optional)


In a medium mixing bowl combine egg, 1/4 cup of the yogurt, mayonnaise or salad dressing, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, paprika, and pepper. Stir in crabmeat and crushed crackers. Shape crab mixture into five 3-inch patties.

Spray a shallow baking pan with nonstick spray coating. Arrange patties in pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from the heat for 10 to 15 minutes or till lightly browned. Do not turn patties during broiling.

Serve crab cakes on tomato slices with remaining yogurt. Garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.
