Today I finally got around to making the jackfruit crab cakes.
The young, immature jackfruit is what is used for the canned meat substitute.
I was surprised to see the seeds in the can. They were all cooked and edible.
I was also surprised that there are only 2 grams of protein per serving. There’s also 2 net carbs per serving so that makes the canned jackfruit fairly ok for keto.
The “crab cakes” I made had cracker crumbs so we can scratch that from being a good keto option.
I added the cracker crumbs, Old Bay seasoning, an egg, mayo, mustard, chopped jalapeno and sliced green onions.
I shaped them into the cakes and browned in a mixture of olive oil and butter.
I topped them with Sriracha mayo. They were good but probably not what I would consider a great substitute for real crab cakes. Vince seemed to like them. I wasn’t terribly impressed. Depending on how much Vince liked them and whether he asks for them again, I doubt I’d make them again.
