Default My First Crab Cakes

I decided to do something a little different for dinner tonight. I am not a big seafood person but decided to make some Crab Cakes for dinner. I had never made them before but I figured they can't be much different than Salmon Patties.

The Crab Cakes were made using a little mayo, green onion, egg, panko, salt, pepper, old bay and cayenne.

I wanted a sauce for the Crab Cakes so I made a simple Roasted Red Pepper and Yogurt sauce. I just put 6oz of plain yogurt, two roasted red peppers, salt, pepper and a bit of lemon juice in the processor and mixed together

I also decided to fry some Okra. I battered them whole and fried them with the Crab Cakes.

Then I made some broccoli/cauliflower slaw using my homemade slaw dressing. It is a sweet and tangy dressing of mayo, sugar, vinegar, salt, celery seed and pepper

I added a little more green onion at the end, just cause I could.

Here is the end result.

Yes I was. I probably could have used a bit more seasoning, but for my first try, I was very happy.

I was also very pleased with the Roasted Red Pepper and Yogurt sauce. I think it would go very well on some Gyros.

It's EZ. Just till their eyes start caving in unless you know how to bring them in too. Lot's of protein there.
