Crab Cakes

Recipe Provided by the Four Points by Sheraton French Quarter

Ingredients:

• 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
• 1/4 cup heavy cream
• 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onions
• 1/4 cup small diced red bell peppers
• 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
• 1 pound lump crabmeat,
• 2.5oz Lea & Perrins
• 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
• 3 tablespoons Creole mustard
• 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
• 3/4 cup bread crumbs
• 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 large egg
• Remoulade Sauce,

Directions:

In a small, heavy saucepan, place the potatoes, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and enough water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer and until the potatoes are fork tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain in a colander.
Return the potatoes to the saucepan. Add the cream, butter and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. With the heat on medium-low, mash until well blended, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.

In a medium sauté pan heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and peppers, and sauté until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool.

In a bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, cooked vegetables, crab meat, Lea & Perrins, parsley, Creole mustard, egg, heavy cream,
2 tablespoons lemon juice and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix to incorporate with bread crumbs.

Dip in the egg wash, letting the excess drip off, then dredge in the seasoned bread crumbs, covering both sides completely. Set aside on a baking sheet to bread the remaining mixture.

In a large, heavy skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over high heat. Carefully add the cakes to the pan being careful not to overcrowd, and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove the cakes from the pan and drain on a paper-lined plate. Serve immediately with Remoulade sauce.
