Dickie Brennan’s Seared Crab Cakes
Seared Crab Cakes
By Chef Jack Martinez
1 lb Jumbo Lump Louisiana Blue Crabmeat picked through for shells
1 Tbsp. Roasted Garlic Aioli (see recipe) just enough to bind crabmeat
1 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
6 oz. Green Tomato Relish (see recipe)
6 oz. Salsa Verde (see recipe)
6 oz. Green Onion & Red Pepper Salad
Fold aioli gently into crabmeat. Put mixture into a ring mold while on a
flat surface. Add butter to warm skillet. Then, add crab cakes and brown
both sides until golden, turning carefully with a spatula underneath to keep
mixture intact. On a salad-sized plate, place green tomato relish in the
center. Place crabmeat on top of relish. Top with Salsa Verde and Green
Onion & Red Pepper Salad.
“And of course, you can add additional flavor to any Louisiana Seafood
recipe with a few shakes of TABASCO brand Pepper Sauce”.
