One of our favorite ways to use frozen crab cakes is in this creamy, delicious Crab Alfredo recipe.
These Maryland Style Crab Cakes include wild-caught blue swimming crab and a proprietary blend of traditional herbs and spices that rivals any crab cakes you’ve ever eaten.
You can have an amazing Crab Alfredo on the table in about the time it takes to cook a pot of pasta. While the pasta cooks, crumble thawed crab cakes into a skillet with melted butter. Stir in your favorite alfredo sauce and then toss gently with the cooked noodles. Just like that, you’ve got Crab Alfredo for two. Need more? This recipe is easy to scale by doubling or tripling. Spice it up with some red pepper, or add broccoli, spinach, or lemon zest for added flavor.
