Recipe - mirelurk cakes is a holotape in Fallout 3.


Found in the hidden freezer compartment belonging to Ted in the Anchorage Memorial Service entrance. The recipe describes how to create mirelurk cakes.


1 bucket mirelurk meat
12 eggs, mixed up
1 loaf bread, stale and crumbled
1 bottle mayonnaise (see Marjorie for mayo)
1 branch scrub plant, dried and crushed
2 fists of salt
Oil (for pan)

Remove any shell from mirelurk. In bucket, toss together bread, egg, scrub and mayo until moistened, but do not over mix. Add any available spices for taste

Ball up 25-30 cakes, 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick. Place in freezer until they firm up. Sprinkle batch with salt.

In a heavy pan, fry cakes in oil, turning once until both sides are brown


This recipe cannot actually be made in the game, as none of the ingredients, aside from the mirelurk meat, exist within the game.
