DIRECTIONS

  • To make the sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Refrigerate until chilled.
  • The sauce will thicken as it chills.
  • To prepare the crab cakes, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat.
  • Saute the onion, bell pepper, and garlic until the pepper is limp, approximately 3 minutes.
  • Add the cream, mustard, 1 egg, parsley, cayenne pepper and 1/2 cup bread crumbs, to taste, and mix well.
  • Gently fold in the crabmeat.
  • Form the mixture into 8 patties, about 1/2-inch thick.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the remaining 1/2 cup of bread crumbs with the Parmesan.
  • Pat this topping onto both sides of the patties.
  • Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
  • Using a skillet, combine the oil and remaining 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • Saute the crab cakes in the hot oil-butter mixture for approximately 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • These crab cakes can also be baked for 7 to 10 minutes in a 400 degree F oven.
  • To serve, spoon a dollop of the lemon dill sauce along side each crab cake.
  • **Cook time doesn't include refrigeration of the crab cakes for approximately 2 hours to let them firm up.
