Joe makes the best crab cakes. He really does—and I order crab cakes at every single restaurant I go to that has them (unless I anticipate them being full of bread crumbs and deep fried). So I really know about crab cakes.
The first version can be found here.
The Crab Cakes Special Edition is actually not much different than the original, but I added an (undetectable) egg, and to the half of the mixture I wasn’t going to eat I added bread crumbs, which I hear was a wonderful addition.
Jumbo lump crab (1 can – I usually buy Boss brand at Wegmans, but I’d like to find one that’s in a BPA free can).
1tsp dry mustard
1/4 cup vegenaise or mayo (we have grapeseed vegenaise out of habit–it’s a texture thing)
worcestershire (several dashes)
sprinkle of fresh or dried parsley
4 dashes of onion powder (or minced onion)
4 dashes of Old Bay seasoning
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Mix thoroughly, form cakes. Heat skillet to medium, add 1 Tbsp grassfed butter to the pan. Make your cakes!
For the dipping sauce, just mix some chipotle powder and a squeeze of lemon juice into some mayo. Be sure to make the outsides of your crab cakes crispy!
News/Notes: It’s so hot in NY—I love it! We don’t have air conditioning and I don’t care—I just sit in front of the fan and do my work (and the sweat drips anyway). I wore my new Juil grounding flip flops to the yoga class I taught tonight, and I love them (even though I don’t feel especially grounded at the moment). I’m going to write more about them tomorrow, and I also have a post almost done about detoxing (that I promised a while ago). For some reason, I just can’t fit my posts in right now–I have been posting a little on my facebook pages, so if you want to keep up with the info I’m putting out in smaller bits, find me at facebook.com/thrivestyle and facebook.com/fitbodystyle, and leave a comment too—I like the interaction part of facebook!
I’m going to Cali on Friday for TRX training (Sunday). This is a quick trip (I’m taking the overnight flight on Monday to get back home on Tues morning), but it also involves some planning for a longer trip I’m taking there in the fall. I’ll be in Santa Monica for about 6 weeks in the fall–it’s really exciting, and I’m lucky to have the opportunity to do some work there and also to stay with my cousin (on the beach). Honestly, I can’t wait to try out all the great yoga studios, and to drink classic kombucha and green juice (without having to make it myself). Ok, and there are some great restaurants in Santa Monica, plus…it’s on the beach.
Do you have anything new and exciting (for work or fun) to look forward to?
Are you a crab cake lover? Seafood?
