Getting ready to go to the beach on Saturday for the week, so to get in the spirit, I’ll make something from the sea! How about crabcakes? Always a hit and easy to make. Crab meat is on sale at the Harris Teeter, so I’ll grab a pound or so and make crab cakes. I found a recipe that uses Panko bread crumbs – I love their extra crunch when frying, and I think they’ll work well with crab to give it some body, but without too much bread in the actual cake. Panko Crab Cakes and Tartar Sauce also includes a recipe for homemade tartar sauce – though I always thought that was just mayonnaise and sweet pickle relish! This recipe looks like it has a little more depth of flavor – love the dash of Tabasco!
Not sure what to serve with the crab cakes – maybe a green salad or something a little more interesting (broccoli salad, snow pea salad?). My family is not crazy about cole slaw (I love it), so that’s not really a possibility. Oh well, I’ll figure it out. Chow!
