Merry Christmas Everyone.
Here is the crab cake recipe for those adventerous souls out there. I will post an update after Christmas.
Crab Cakes with Old Bay Mayonnaise
Makes 8 large crab cakes
2 cups panko breadcrumbs, divided
¼ cup each minced red bell pepper, celery, red onion
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ cup mayonnaise
2 large eggs
3 dashes Tabasco sauce
3 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
½ teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups fresh crabmeat
¼ cup clarified butter
Old Bay mayonnaise:
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
In a bowl, combine 1 cup panko with the vegetables, lemon juice,
mayonnaise, eggs, Tabasco, parsley and salt. Mix thoroughly. Gently add
crabmeat. Form into patties and coat top and bottom with remaining
2. In a small bowl, combine the Old Bay mayonnaise ingredients. Chill until ready to use.
Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat and melt clarified butter. Saute
cakes on both sides until golden brown. Serve with Old Bay mayonnaise.
