I love to serve my crab cakes with baby roasted potatoes and an arugula salad. Here’s the recipe for my favorite sriracha mayo.

We asked our expert from St. Gambrinus Beer Shoppe what beer to pair with these babies and we love her choice. A little “Spill the Tea” is a delicious pairing with these crab cakes! Heather says:

“Spill the Tea” is a refreshing India Pale Lager brewed with green tea and citrus peel, which will pair beautifully with crab cakes! The subtle green tea and more prominent citrus peel will bring out the delicate flavor of the crab without overpowering it and the hops will stand up to the Siracha mayo. “Spill the Tea” is collaboration between Jacks Abbey, a Massachusetts brewery that specializes in lagers, and a persona favorite, Finback Brewery from Queens.
