Datil Pepper Crab Cakes

Datil Pepper Crab Cakes

The datil pepper adds the perfect spice to shell fish meat and makes a scrumptious crab cake dinner entree. While we suggest our original datil pepper sauce, your crab cakes can take on a whole new bold flavor with our mango datil pepper sauce too.
Crab cakes aren’t just for entrees either, you can take this simple crab cake and pepper sauce recipe and divide it into smaller portions for a perfectly delicious and just a bit spicy appetizer!
The secret to these delicious crab cakes, in addition to the pepper sauce, is the small amount of Panko instead of breadcrumbs for a noticeable flavor difference. Give your crab cakes a new WOW! factor with the right pepper sauce.
