DIRECTIONS

  • For crab cakes:
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the crab meat, eggs, salt, cayenne pepper, coriander, red pepper, garlic, and ginger. Blend well.
  • Form the mixture by hand into 8 cakes. Place the bread crumbs on a planted and dip the crab cakes into the crumbs until well-coated.
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet and when hot add the crab cakes and saute until the cakes are golden on both sides, about 2 minutes.
  • To serve pour sauce on a plate and top with the crab cakes.
  • For the Papaya-Basil Sauce:
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the wine, papaya, and shallot. Reduce the liquid by two-thirds, then add teh cream and reduce again by two-thirds. Slowly whisk in the butter, piece by piece, melting one before incorporating another. Season with salt, pepper, ginger, and lime juice. Put the mixture into a blender and blend until the ingredients are well combined.
  • Pour the sauce into a bowl and add the basil. Allow it to infuse for at least 20 minutes before serving.
