Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 F
  • Crab Cakes: combine all the crab cake ingredients except the vegi oil in a large bowl and mix well. (use your hands, like with meat loaf or meatballs.) Then form cakes into patties about 2 1/2 inches wide and an inch thick. Should make about 8 or 9.
  • Heat about a 1/2 inch of oil in a frying pan on med-high heat. Sear the crab cakes on each side till golden brown brown (about 3 min per side). Place on a baking stone. Transfer to the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Serve hot.
  • Red Pepper Coulis
  • In a blender combine all ingredients. Blend till smooth. Add water if too thick.
  • To serve decoratively drizzle coulis on plate. Put crab cake in the middle. Garnish how you like. Serve hot.
  • NOTES: If you use canned seafood, taste for saltiness. If it's too salty rinse and pat dry with paper towels first. You can "lighten" it up with reduced fat mayonaisse and sour cream. If you have a really excellent non-stick pan you could sear the crab cakes with a very light film of oil rather than pan frying in oil. If it's not a really good nonstick, the crab cakes may fall apart when you try to flip them. If you don't like it spicy omit the red pepper, if you like it more so, add more!
  • I adapted this recipe from a recipe I found in the Washington Post.

    I use homemade bread crumbs and I've used Japanese Panko. Both work just fine, the Panko is more subtle, probably cuz my homemade are made from whole wheat bread...
