Healthy Oven-baked Crabcake

In spring, my favourite crustacean, crab, is in season! Super easy to cook, and so good plain or with a touch of mayonnaise! I also enjoy preparing fresh crab salads, with citrus, avocado, and mango. Miam! Undoubtedly, when talking about crab we think of the delicious deep-fried crabcake. Here is my light version of this delicious dish. 

4 servings

400 g crab meat, fresh (if possible)
125 ml (1/2 cup) sweet red pepper, finely chopped
90 ml (1/3 cup) corn, fresh, cooked, or defrosted
1 green onion, finely chopped
15 ml (1 tablespoon) cilantro, chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
125 ml (1/2 cup) Panko breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper, to taste

Spicy Light Mayo
30 ml (2 tablespoons) light mayonnaise
30 ml (2 tablespoons) plain 0% Greek yogurt
5 ml (1 teaspoons) Sriracha hot sauce
Juice and zest from a lime
1 green onion, finely chopped
A few drops of Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
