Northwest Dungeness Crab Cake Burger Recipe

Northwest Dungeness Crab Cake Burger

Serves 4
This crab burger is the Northwest's cousin to a lobster roll—featuring our own housemade Best of Met Dungeness Crab Cakes, made with real West Coast Dungeness and a light panko breadcrumb crust to give them a crispy texture on the outside. Accompanied by aioli, bright pickles, creamy avocado, and crunchy radishes, this burger will awaken all your senses. Serve with fries and additional aioli for dipping.

Ingredients:

  • 4 crab cakes
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 4 brioche buns
  • 1/2 cup aioli
  • 1 avocado, divided into 12 slices
  • 1 watermelon radish or 3 regular radishes, sliced
  • Pickled fennel - follow instructions for Quick Pickled Vegetables
  • Your favorite greens or microgreens
  • Dijon mustard (optional)

Directions:

  1. On the stovetop, melt butter in heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the crab cakes and cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  2. Open buns and place on a sheet pan, inside up. Turn the oven on on broil and toast the buns for a couple of minutes. Check frequently to keep them from burning.
  3. Once slightly toasted, take them out, slather the bottom with a tablespoon of aioli each. Place a crab cake on each bun and top with the additional aioli, radish, avocado, pickled fennel, and greens. Serve immediately.
