Crab Cakes With Whole Grain Mustard Remoulade

Total Time
Prep 20 mins

I had crab cakes at a local restaurant here (Shucks Oyster Bar) and tried desperately to get their recipe. After several email, phone, and in person attempts, I decided to try and recreate these fabulous cakes. With luck, I was able to perfect the cakes as well as the Remoulade. The pictures posted are before and after sautéing the cakes in olive oil. The after pictures were smaller cakes as I decided to make these as an appetizer for this Thanksgiving. I made them, cooled in the fridge, froze in freezer, then food savered them to have throughout the holidays.

These came out really well, although I didn't follow the recipe to the letter (Probably would have been 5* if I had). Because I only had a small tin of crab meat and I wanted to try out the recipe I just eyeballed the remaining ingredients, but still used a whole egg so the mixture was probably a bit sloppier than it should have been. Consequently I just spooned the mixture into the pan without shaping them and dusting with flour. But they came out really well even so. I also didn't make the sauce, I served them with some Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce that I had.

It is very delicate to handle crab meat. The recipe came out well. We all loved.
