Baked Corn and Crab Cakes – Healthyish Foods

I love seafood especially when it’s warm outside. There is nothing better than warm crab cakes loaded with sweet corn, topped with a dollop of sour cream and finished with fresh squeezed lemon.

To keep things light, try these cakes over a simple summer salad. Or for a heartier meal, pair them with a side of hash brown potatoes. Either way, they are sure to be a family favorite!

  • 1 lb. crab claw meat – lump meat will work too
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon old bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1.5 cups whole sweet corn kernels
  • 3/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • Optional garnishes and dips: scallions, lemon wedges, sour cream, horseradish, tartar, or hot sauce.


  • baking tray
  • mixing bowl


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spray a baking tray with cooking spray, set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the mayo, Dijon mustard, egg, pinch of salt, pepper, old bay seasoning, and Worcestershire sauce, whisk until creamy and smooth.
  • Add in the corn kernels, and drained crab meat. Gently toss ingredients together.
  • Next, add in the panko breadcrumbs. Gently fold everything together.
  • Form the crab and corn mixture into evenly sized patties. I was able to get 9 large patties, but you could also do 12 small to medium sized patties as well.
  • Line the patties on the baking tray and bake for 24 minutes making sure to flip them halfway through. Option to broil for an additional 1-2 minutes for an extra crispy top. ** If you decide to make 12 smaller patties you may need to reduce the cooking time to prevent overcooking. **
  • Remove from the oven and serve with your favorite chopped scallion, fresh lemon wedges and your favorite dipping sauces.
