Crab Cakes with Spicy Come Back Dressing (photos)
The wife (MHNBPF) made a nice crab cake dinner for us tonight. I helped by mixing the spicy Come Back Dressing for the crab cakes. I also put together a Caesar Salad and stood KP duty for her. Oh, and I took the photos.

Here is how I made my dressing for the Crab Cakes:

Spicy Comeback Dressing

Need:

1/2 cup Chili Sauce
6 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Creole Mustard
2 teaspoons Garlic Salt
2 pinches Black Pepper
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Slap Ya Momma
1 Tablespoon unrinsed Capers
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon LA Gold Hot sauce (to taste)

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.

Stir well, taste and adjust as desired. Chill if needed.

Here is how my wife made the Crab Cakes.

Crab Cakes, WP

Need:

1 Pound lump Crab meat
2 Tablespoons Red Bell Pepper, small dice
2 Tablespoons Yellow Bell Pepper, small dice
1/4 cup Shallot small dice
2 teaspoons Creole Mustard
1/2 cup Saltine Crackers, crushed
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1 Egg
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Slap Ya Momma
1/2 teaspoon LA Gold Hot Sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon Parsley
3 Tablespoons vegetable Oil

Directions:

Crush the crackers and set aside.

Prep the vegetables.

It is never easy to get crab here, but Sam's sells a good product, so most of the time we use that when we need crab meat.

Pick crab meat to make certain any shell pieces are removed.

Add all the wet ingredients and seasoning to a separate bowl and mix well.

Then add the vegetables, crushed crackers

and the wet ingredients to the crab

Mix together gently and hold for 15 minutes to allow the mixture to set

We used metal rings to form the patties

Our pound of crab made 8 patties, but we only had 6 rings.

Not to worry, the wife used her problem solving abilities to work all of that out. We only cooked four crab cakes tonight and froze the others for another good meal sometime in the next few days.

Fry in vegetable oil over medium high heat. Turn once, when the first side has a crust and has browned. If you don't use much oil, there will be no need to drain the cakes. You can fry the cakes in butter or olive oil if you like.

I made a Caesar Salad for us:

And we enjoyed our evening meal.

There was a beer hiding somewhere, just outside of my photos.

edited on 5/24 to add the following:


Did you cook them in the rings?

No we didn't. We don't use a lot of binders, so it is difficult to keep them together, Just used the rings to hold them until we got them into the skillet. Then gently pulled the rings off and tapped the crab back in place to form the cakes.

Our rings have handles that extend upwards from the top and wouldn't work when they were turned. Other than that, they might work fine. I just don't know for certain if cooking them in a ring would work.

I like crab, it is relatively expensive here and I hate to alter the taste with a lot of binder, so we don't use a lot of it in our cakes. The trade off, is they are hard to manipulate in the skillet. Gard to put in and hard to flip.

I always take a lot of photos when I do these things and then delete most of them, keeping what I consider to be the better photos. I went back this morning and discovered 20 or so photos that I didn't take off my cell phone.

Here is a photo of the cakes cooking.

And another.

We freeze the extra cakes in the rings and then push them out (after they are frozen) for storage, wrapped in plastic wrap and then bagged for storage in the freezer. I will take photos when we cook the frozen cakes - probably tonight, because I don't want to lose them in the freezer.

If you have no complaints with cooking the cakes from frozen, the frozen cakes work better.

The photos here were taken today, when I pulled the frozen cakes from the freezer, un-ringed them and wrapped/bagged them.

Yes, it is what we can buy here. Common problem 3 hours from the beach.

Very nice! I commend your crabmeat to breading ratio. Most use way too much breading. The cakes should just barely hold together. On a side note we love to use cold leftover crawfish tails from a boil as a sub for the crab on occasion.

Yummy.

My father was born and raised in Edwards, MS just outside of Vicksburg. To this day, he makes “Mississippi Come Back Sauce” on the regular and there is always a fresh plastic bottle full of it.

We do them as shrimp cakes also. The cakes are bigger than the crab and make a nice shrimp burger.

I guess I should make a Mr. Crab's (on SpongeBob) Crabby Patty. Problem is, it makes a pricy burger.

Shingo - paper plates


????? you have confused me.


I am 99% certain I have never posted a photo of food on a paper plate. We don't use them at our house.

oh well. I should be accustomed to being confused. It seems to be my favorite condition.
