How to make it
- In small sauté pan, melt butter and sauté celery and red bell pepper until soft. Put into a mixing bowl along with the remaining crab cake ingredients. When adding crab, be careful when folding it in, as to not break it up too much.
- Form into 4 patties (same diameter as the brioche buns you are using) See Photo. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
- Lightly dredge crab cakes in flour, patting off excess. Melt 1 tablespoon butter with about 1 tablespoon of oil in a nonstick pan. Fry crab cakes on each side until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes per side). Transfer crab cakes to a baking sheet and finish in the oven at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
- Cut each bun in half and toast in a skillet. Spread sauce on buns, place crab cake on each, top with avocado and a lettuce leaf. Place bun on top and skewer with bamboo skewer and lemon garnish.
