Crab Cakes
« on: December 04, 2017, 11:26:31 PM »
Kinda winging the ingredient size but made these for the wifey tonight.

Bought a 1lb of snow crab (they are the smaller / thinner ones). Regret instantly but made due. The kings are sooooo much easier to harvest ugh.

crab meat pulled in a bowl
On the skillet - chopped fine, sweet red onion, orange bell pepper and quarter clove garlic for a bit in olive oil (5 min on med-high?) added some green onion for the last few minutes. Just wanted to sweat the flavor and still have some crunch.
Added to bowl with crab meat. Salt / Pepper to taste
Added Mayo (your choice but good squirt maybe 1/4 cup) and one egg.
Added half cup panko / half cup season bread crumbs (more of a guess since i just pour in till I get the right consistency.
Mix till it's easy to make cakes. Add more crumbs if too wet.
Lined baking sheet with foil and placed cakes on sheet.
Broiler setting for 8 min then flip for another 8 mins. until golden brown

Sauce was half cup Mayo (we use the Kraft olive oil mayo), 1 tbls ketchup, 1 tbls mustard, 1 tbls sweet relish, 1 tsp pickapepper sauce. whisk together.

Delight!!! Enjoy!

Made six, had two, wifey couldn't finish

Yumm!  I like the snow crab, but you are right.  The King crab is easier to de-shell.
You can't catch them from your computer chair.

I never appreciated crab recipes before, but I don't know, this might change my mind. Great job, WheresMyBeer!
