Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy tasty seafood. We recreated classic crab cakes into a Paleo version that melts in your mouth.
Almond flour replaces regular flour to create a crunchy outer layer bursting with flavor. Find Paleo mayonnaise, or make your own, for a tasty sauce to serve on the side.
