Spiceology Korean BBQ Crab Cakes Recipes

Korean BBQ Crab Cakes

  • Author: Chef Christian Gill
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 46 servings 1x


  • 2 1-lb tubs Costco Lump Crab Meat
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 cups Panko flakes
  • 1/8 cup Spiceology Korean BBQ Blend
  • 1 1/2 cup Green Onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1/8 cup Fresh Garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Ginger (minced)
  • 2 Tbsp Spicy Brown Mustard
  • 1 cup Duke’s Mayo
  • 4 limes – Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice

For the Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 cup Duke’s Mayo
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro (finely chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp Spicy Brown Mustard
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup Rice Vinegar


  1. Preheat Griddle to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, Korean BBQ, green onion, garlic, ginger, spicy brown mustard, 1 cup Duke’s mayo, and lime juice. Whisk thoroughly then add panko and crab meat. Using gloves, fold in the panko and crab until everything is evenly mixed.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  4. While crab cake mix is resting, combine the remaining mayo with cilantro, mustard, salt, and rice vinegar. Whisk thoroughly, cover, and refrigerate.
  5. Remove crab cake mix from the fridge and patty out 12 cakes approximately 4 inches wide and 1/2-inch thick.
  6. Heat a small amount of oil on the griddle surface and add crab cakes. Cook for 4 minutes per side, taking care not to burn the crab cakes.
  7. Remove from the griddle, plate, and serve with the cilantro aioli.


“In order to get the perfect sear, but maintain even cooking without burning, I turn down one side of my griddle right before I add the oil and crab cakes. This allows me to control my temp to an extent, and keep grilling without removing them from the heat.”
