Recipe: Caveman Crab Cakes (for Carnivores)

A container of crab meat has been sitting in my fridge for a long, long time, so today it was time to find a way to use it. I really wasn't sure if just crab meat and egg yolk could turn into anything of note, but would you look at that...


140g crab meat (that's the size of the containers in Australia at least...)
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon of preferred herbs/spices (I chose paprika, thyme and fennel seeds)
2T lard


Mix crab meat, egg yolks and herbs in a bowl.

Heat lard in a large frying pan.

While the fat heats, take tablespoonfuls of crab mixture and roll and press in your hands to make flat, round patties about a centimetre (half and inch) thick.

Place patties in frying pan for a couple of minutes until edges brown and crisp up, then flip carefully with a spatula to brown the other side.

Delicious served warm and plain, and I bet they'd also be lovely with some mayonnaise or topped with a slice of tomato for the primal non-carnivore.
