Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 lb white or claw crabmeat, picked free of any bits of shell
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh parsley, minced, plus 1 tablespoon chopped for sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced and divided
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Preparation

To make the sauce, combine mayo, buttermilk, dill, 1 tablespoon parsley, lemon zest and juice and 1 garlic clove 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. Sauté the onion, bell pepper and 1 clove garlic until the pepper is limp, approximately 3 minutes. Add the cream, mustard, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon 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° oven.

 

To serve, spoon a dollop of the lemon dill sauce along side each crab cake.
