Roasted Red Pepper Sauce for Crab Cakes

"Also good on grilled fish and grilled chicken. Different from those posted here already and easy, made with ingredients you probably keep on hand: jar roasted red peppers, garlic cloves, olive oil, lemon juice, red pepper sauce, mayo and salt and pepper. You can use low fat mayo to cut calories. For about 10 crab cakes, using 1 lb. crab, you may want to make half the recipe. We had a lot left over."

  1. Just like the one served at a high end seafood restaurant in my area. Definitely something to impress your guests and/or your your taste buds. Thank you.
  2. This is the perfect roastd red pepper sauce! I added a little bit more heat than a dash but that is the only thing I changed. It was the highlight of our meal and we also loved using it as a dipping sauce for our french fries. We cut the recipe in half and it still made a ton! Thanks so much for posting!!


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
