We had some left over Alaskan King Crab legs from our prior evening feast. So I decide why not make some crabs cakes out of them. Crab is crab, right? They came out great. Topped them with some homemade Corn Salsa and a little hot sauce…mmm mmm good!
1 Pound (Any Fresh Crab Meat Will Do)
1 Medium, diced
4 , minced
Dry white wine
1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
1 , lightly beaten
Reduced fat mayonnaise
Panko bread crumbs
2 Cup (32 tbs)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Heat olive oil over medium high heat. Saute onion’s till translucent. Add garlic and cook additional 2 minutes. Add dry white wine, de-glaze the pan and let simmer 3-4 minutes. Turn off heat and set pan aside and let cool.
Place cooled onion and garlic mixture in a bowl. Add crab meat, egg and mayonnaise. Salt and pepper to taste. Add bread crumbs and mix well.
Make cakes approximately 1/2 inch thick. Place on a baking dish and refrigerate for 1-hour so the cakes firm up.
Lightly coat pan with olive oil and brown cakes 2-3 minutes per side. Place on baking dish and bake for 15-minutes. Remove from oven and top with some corn salsa.
