Crab Cake Recipe

Crab cake with avocado sauce and fresh corn and serrano chile salsa

In Ecuador we don’t have “Crab Cakes” but since I love both cuisines, the American and Ecuadorian, I decided to combined them together.  I love this crab cake because they are so light yet delicious.  The cilantro, avocado and salsa add a little taste of my beautiful land.

 

Ingredients

2 cups of lump crabmeat

2 table spoons of dijon mustard

1/4 cup of mayo

1/4 cup roasted red peppers chopped

3 scallions chopped

1 egg

2 garlic cloves

1/4 c panko ( and 1 C for rolling)

1 tbsp old bay

1 tsp cayenne pepper

1 lime juice

Salt and pepper tt

Procedure:

Mix all the ingredients together.  Form the mixture into about 12 – 14 crab cakes, about 2 tablespoons each, then roll each crab cake in the extra cup of panko.  Put on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Heat the butter and olive oil for frying over medium heat in a large saute pan.  Add the crab cakes and fry 4 – 5 minutes on each side until golden brown.

 

Avocado sauce

1/2 avocado

1 tbsp mayo

1 lemon juice

1 – 2 tbsp water

salt and pepper to taste

Add the ingredients in a food processor or blender.

 

Fresh corn and serrano chile salsa

 

3 ear corn, husk, silk removed and grilled
