Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Sauté the bell peppers in 1 tablespoon butter.
  2. Grate the lemon rind for 1 heaping teaspoon of zest.
  3. Mix zest, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, mayo, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, egg, parsley, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, one tablespoon flour, sautéed peppers, breadcrumbs, and cooked corn in a large bowl.
  4. Gently (GENTLY!) fold in the crab meat.
  5. Mix well and shape into 3 inch wide patties.
  6. Wrap and refrigerate the patties for about an hour.
  7. When ready to cook, heat a large skillet with remaining butter and olive oil.
  8. Dip each crab cake very lightly in flour so that it is lightly coated all around.
  9. Tap off excess flour.
  10. Fry cakes on both sides until just browned.
  11. If you'd rather skip the extra flour, butter, and oil -- spray a skillet with Pam and fry un-dredged cakes until browned.
  12. Serve on a bed of garden greens garnished with lemon wedges, sprigs of fresh parsley, and some tartar sauce for dipping.
  13. Goes great with a big ol' salad with buttercream dressing and crumbled hard boiled egg!
