DIRECTIONS

  • Make the mayonnaise by putting the egg yolks, seasonings, and vinegar into a bowl. Whip until the salt dissolves. Add the oil, drop by drop, until the sauce begins to thicken, then begin adding in a slow, steady stream, stopping, to incorporate the oil fully. When all of the oil has been used, stir in the water, this will keep it smooth, an disallow it to separate, once it has been made. Measure 1/2 cup of it, and put it into a bowl where the cakes will get made. Set the remainder aside, at room temperature.
  • In the bowl with the measured mayonnaise, add the egg, creole seasoning, mustard, scallions, capers, and some chopped parsley, if desired. Taste, and correct for salt and pepper. Stir in the crab. Moisten, then add the breadcrumbs, and bring together loosely.
  • The cakes can be made any size desired, I usually form them from 1/4-1/3 cup fulls. They will hold together nicely. Heat a frying pan with half of the butter, and several tablespoons of vegetable oil. Fry in batches. Flip tenderly. Dust in a light coating of cornflour before cooking, if a crisp exterior is highly desired.
  • Place the finished cakes on a sheet pan, fitted with a jelly rack. Place them into a moderate oven to finish baking for about 6 minutes. In the meantime, make the sauce, add chopped capers, to taste, and the pickles, season with about a teaspoon of lemon juice, more if desired, taste, and correct for salt and pepper. Serve at once.
