I've been so busy with costuming stuff, it's been a while since I posted a recipe... and even longer since I've posted something gluten-free. Well, let's fix that 🙂

Horseradish Sauce for Gluten-Free Crab Cakes
While these crab cakes are fantastic on their own - maybe with a little lemon squeezed over them! - the horseradish sauce really kicks it up a bit!
This is super easy to make and only has 3 ingredients. You'll want to make it at least an hour ahead, though - it really benefits from letting the ingredients mingle for a while!
½ cup sour cream
2 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoon+ prepared horseradish
Whisk together until well blended, chill for 1 hour. Taste, add more horseradish if you'd like more bite.

Gluten Free Crab Cakes with Horseradish Sauce
- 1 lb Crab Meat
- ¼-1/2 Cup Mayonnaise

- Strain any visible liquid off crab meat, if applicable. Pick through meat to remove shells, discard any found. Set crab meat aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, eggs, and mustard until smooth. Add Worchestershire sauce, garlic, salt, and rice flour, once again whisking until smooth and well incorporated. Add green onions, chili, and crab meat, gently mix until well combined.
- Cover and chill for 1 hour.
- In a large fry pan, heat 1-2 tablespoon oil over medium heat. As oil is heating, shape crab mixture into patties
- Use a metal spatula to gently transfer crab cakes to oil, being careful not to burn yourself – oil may spatter. Pan fry crab cakes until browned – about 4 minutes on each side.
- Serve warm, with lemon wedges and horseradish sauce:
- Whisk all sauce ingredients together until well blended, chill for 1 hour. Taste, add more horseradish if you’d like more bite.
