Crispy Almond Crab Cakes with Lemon Caper Remoulade

1 LB Crabmeat

2 Tsp EACH Salt and Pepper

¼ Cup Olive Oil Mayonnaise

1 TSP Dijon Mustard

2 TB Worcestershire Sauce

1 TSP Baking Powder

2 Cups Almond Meal

1 Large Egg, Beaten

¼ Cup Minced Parsley

2 TB Canola Oil

Step One Place the crabmeat in a bowl and add the salt and pepper. In another bowl; mix the mayo, mustard and Worcestershire. Gently fold mixture into crabmeat. In a third bowl, toss the baking powder, parsley, and 1/4 cup of the almond meal together. Add to your crabmeat mixture and again fold in gently.

Step Two On a plate; place the remainder of the almond meal. Make a crab cake about the size of a half dollar and coat with the meal – just enough to cover the crab cake. Put the crab cakes on a plate and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Step Three In a large skillet; heat the oil over medium high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and gently place crab cakes in the oil. Crab cakes are ready when browned on both sides – usually a few minutes per side.

This crab cake makes a perfectly beautiful salad – I would serve it on a bed of spring greens dressed with a little oil and lemon juice.

No. 4 : Wine FIND of the Week

Maison Matisco Macon-Villages
Maconnaise, Burgundy France
Costco about $16.00

Made from the Chardonnay grape, but named in the old-world fashion by the place – not by the grape, this wine is an affordable white Burgundy that will pair well with the almond crust of the crab cake and the zippy lemon of the Remolaude. Juicy tasting with lively acidity, its a versatile quaffer for seafood, poultry and veggies, too!
