These Jackfruit Crab Cakes are a savory substitute for conventional crab cakes. Jackfruit has a mild flavor that takes on the flavors of your seasonings so it’s a good replacement for most types of shredded meat.
The dried seaweed is the key to achieving a seafood flavor and aroma so don’t skip it. We found it in the Asian foods section of our Natural Grocers, and I know Whole Foods carries it too.
The Old Bay seasoning was more difficult to find. We finally found it at a small Asian grocery store not to far from our house. I guess that’s not a popular seasoning in the Denver metro. It’s probably much easier to find in other parts of the country.
Amelia made some delicious Thai Style Sweet and Spicy Sauce to go with these, but you can use your favorite non-dairy condiment.
