Crab Cakes with Mango Salsa is our favorite snack and we always make extra as they tend to disappear as soon as served. 

My recipe is super easy and perfect to learn How to make Crab Cakes?

We recently came across these ‘Beaujolais Wine’ from Eastern France, they are so versatile, fresh and easy to pair with a variety of foods.

In other words, they’re about to be your go-to wines for the summer or transition to fall.

So we had a perfect reason to throw a small get-together at our place with our wine enthusiast friend (something we all keep doing within friends when we find new wines).

Now, did you know that ‘Beaujolais’ is one of the oldest wine regions in the world?

And since only manual harvesting is allowed in that region, that means entire bunches are sorted to remove any bad grapes.

Hence resulting in fine quality and aroma but at the same time being very attainable wine that can be enjoyed at all times.

 Now, because of its light, fruity, aromatic flavors, these Beaujolais wines are a perfect pairing with my Crab Cakes with Mango Salsa.

Coming back to our recipe, where I’m using more crab meat than other fillers as I want each bite to have more of the delicious crab meat.

Also, including more meat results in juicy and soft crab cakes than adding too many other ingredients or even breadcrumbs (which will make them dense). quick Crab Cakes recipe

As the crab cakes are filled with all this crab meat, mayo, mustard, etc, they tend to become slightly more creamy hence pairing it with a fresh mango salsa adds a nice lightness.

I’m also adding a thin layer (any design you please) of light mayo on top of the crab cake to make them look even prettier and delicious …. Don’t we eat with our eyes first 😉
