How To Reheat Cooper’s Crab Cakes.

Here are three effective methods to reheat delectable crab cakes: utilizing a toaster oven, employing a stove, and leveraging an air fryer. Each approach comes with its own set of pros and cons, depending on factors such as the quantity of crab cakes, the desired texture, and the time available.

Whether served on its own, paired with side dishes, incorporated into a sandwich, or used as a crunchy accompaniment to the main course with preferred sauces, crab cakes offer culinary flexibility. Additionally, they can be savored cold if preferred.

Cooper’s Crab cakes reheat exceptionally well, saving valuable time during meal preparation. However, caution should be exercised to prevent excessive drying, as the dish’s crispy nature makes it susceptible to becoming overly dry. Here are optimal methods for reheating leftover cooked crab cakes to maintain their deliciousness


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Step 2: Prepare crab cakes on a baking tray with a paper baking sheet. Top with a little melted butter. Ensure enough space between them and cover them with foil. Optionally, add a few drops of water in the tray corners for moisture.

Step 3: Bake for 10-15 minutes until fully warmed. Adjust time-based on the crab cake size for crunchy and tender results.


Step 1: Heat a frying pan on medium heat, using a little oil or butter. You don’t want your crab cakes to burn during the warm-up process, so don’t use the maximum heat.

Step 2: Place crab cakes in the pan, cover with a lid, and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side.

Step 3: If dry, add a little water and cover the pan. In a few minutes, the crab cakes will be ready to enjoy.


Step 1: Preheat the air fryer to 350°F.

Step 2: Arrange leftover crab cakes in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Top with a little melted butter.

Step 3: Cook for 5 minutes, flipping halfway for even crispiness. Check for doneness, and if needed, return for an additional minute or two.

These methods ensure your crab cakes are heated thoroughly with different textures based on your preference.
