Crabby Corn Cakes

  Chopped red bell pepper 2 Tablespoon
  Chopped onion 2 Tablespoon
  Frozen crabmeat 5 Ounce, thawed
  Corn muffin 2 Ounce, made into crumbs (1 day old)
  Egg 1 , separated
  Freshly squeezed lime juice 1 Tablespoon, divided
  Hot sauce 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Vegetable oil 2 Teaspoon, divided
  Sour cream 3 Tablespoon
  Dijon style mustard 1 Tablespoon
  Grated lime peel 1⁄4 Teaspoon

1) Use non-stick cooking spray to spray a non-stick skillet of 10-inches.
2) Add the onion and bell pepper and sauté over moderate-high heat, frequently stirring, till the ingredients are tender. This usually takes 1 to 2 minutes.
3) Put the sautéed vegetables in a medium mixing bowl and add the corn muffin crumbs, egg yolks, crab meat, 2 teaspoons of lime juice and hot sauté. Stir well to combine.
4) Set the mixture aside.
5) With an electric mixer set on high speed, beat the egg whites in a small mixing bowl till they are stiff but not dry.
6) Fold the egg whites into the crabmeat mixture very gently.
7) In the skillet used before, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and using half of the crabmeat mixture and making 4 cakes, drop the mixture into the hot oil.
8) Cook over moderate-high heat, turning once, till the cakes are light brown. This takes 2 to 3 minutes of cooking on each side.
9) Put the cakes on a serving platter and set aside. Keep warm.
10) Repeat the process using the remaining oils and crabmeat mixture to make 4 more cakes.
11) Combine together the sour cream, mustard, remaining teaspoon lime juice and the lime peel in a small mixing bowl. Stir well to combine.

12) Serve the crabmeat cakes while still hot. Top each crab cakes portion with half of the sour cream mixture and serve as a main dish.
