Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking sheet.
  2. In a medium skillet over medium low heat, cook and stir shrimp and red bell pepper until shrimp is partially cooked. Remove from heat, and set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in the skillet over medium heat, and cook salmon just until no longer pink. Remove from heat, cool, and finely chop.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix whole wheat bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, black pepper, basil, and thyme. Stir in shrimp, red bell pepper, salmon, remaining olive oil, chives, and jalapeno. Thoroughly blend eggs and cream cheese into the mixture.
  4. Divide the mixture into about 4 patties 3/4 inch thick, and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Bake 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.

Finally got around to rating this again having made the recipe as is. These are just awesome in every way. The patties are very generously sized and very filling. This recipe is in our permanent five star file. :-)



Oh, bubba! These were so yummy!The only thing i changed was a rib of celery in place of the jalapeno....but man-oh-man were these good. Just one thing though..... 4 patties? I made 6 ENORMOUS patties (2-3 times the size of normal crab cakes) thanks for sharing them :-)



Not sure who the Chef Bubba is that submitted this recipe, but the recipe in Ladies Home Journal, June 2007, for Uncle Bubba's Crab Cakes shared by Earl "Bubba" Heirs, co-owner and chef of Uncle Bubba's Oyster House sounds much better. I say that only because they are fried in oil and butter. I think this recipe would be much better if fried in a pan instead of baked. Healthier baked, but they were to dry for me. As another reviewer said, 450 maybe is to hot.
