I went on a cooking bender last week, and this was one of the recipes that surfaced. I ripped it off from here:
and then did my own modifications.
Crispy Cilantro Crab Cakes (serves 6-8 as appetizer, 4 as entree)
3 cans Trader Joe's lump crab meat (6 oz. ea.)
1 box Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
3 green onions, chopped
2 eggs, whisked
Salt and pepper to taste (approx. 1/2 tsp salt)
canola oil for frying
I served them with some faux-aioli, I just mixed some mayo with quite a bit of lemon juice and cumin and it was the perfect little dipping sauce combo. We had a nice little green salad on the side with the rest of that diced red bell pepper and a glass of leftover white wine. It was an awesome dinner. I highly recommend it, even though I am usually not one for frying stuff (I always make a mess).
