  • 1 16-ounce can fresh crab meat

Start by mixing the crab and egg in a large bowl. Add all remaining ingredients except for the extra 2 tablespoons almond flour and the oil. Add more tapioca if mixture seems too wet. Form into four patties and place on a plate. Dust each side with almond flour and place in fridge for 20 minutes. When ready, heat pan with oil and add each crab cake. Cook on medium-high until each side is golden brown, about 4 minutes each side.
