How to make it

  • In a large skillet heat 2 teaspoons of the cooking oil.
  • Cook and stir the zucchini and green onions about 3 minutes or until vegetables are just tender and the liquid is evaporated.
  • Cool slightly.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the beaten egg, bread crumbs, Dijon-style mustard, lemon thyme, and, if desired, red pepper.
  • Add the zucchini mixture and crabmeat; mix well.
  • Using about 1/4 cup of the mixture for each crab cake, shape into 8 patties, 1/2 inch thick and 2-1/2 inches in diameter.
  • Brush both sides of the crab cakes lightly with the remaining 4 teaspoons of oil.
  • Place crab cakes directly on a lightly oiled, preheated grill rack.
  • Grill crab cakes on an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown, turning once.
  • To serve, overlap 2 crab cakes on individual salad plates along with sliced tomatoes.
  • Garnish with cherry tomatoes and lemon or lime wedges, if desired. Serve with Tomato-Sour Cream Dipping Sauce. Makes 4 side-dish servings (2 crab cakes with 2 tablespoons sauce).
  • Tomato-Sour Cream Dipping Sauce: In a small mixing bowl stir together dairy sour cream, minced yellow and red tomatoes, lemon or lime juice, and seasoned salt. Cover and chill. Serve with crab cakes. Makes about 3/4 cup.
  • Make-Ahead Tip:
  • Prepare Tomato-Sour Cream Dipping Sauce; cover and chill up to 4 hours.
