Crab cakes give me some more! With Chilli Lime Butter Roasted Corn!

Hey Butterflies!  I’m back with another few treasured recipes I have used over some time and now I want to share.  I love crab cakes!  I will eat them anytime of the day and this is good timing seeing I need more vitamin K in my diet.  Thank you @Chriscook4u2 on youtube and @LauraInTheKitchen  I mixed recipes and even made the roasted corn with chilli lime butter omg… here we go!

Ingredients

    • 1 lb of Crab Meat (which ever kind you like, I use the lump meat)

    • ¼ cup of Regular Bread Crumbs ( I used 1/8 cup of butter crackers and 1/8 Mama’s Seasoned coating mix…use more if mix is too moist)

    • 2 Tbsp of Fresh Parsley, chopped

    • 3 Tbsp of Mayo

    • 1 Egg (I used 2)
    • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard ( Used Brown Mustard)
    • 1 Tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
    • 1 Tbsp of Old Bay Seasoning
    • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
    • A pinch of arugula for each cake
    • Salt and Pepper, to taste

    • 2 Tbsp of Olive Oil (plus more for frying)

    • 2 cups of Panko Bread Crumbs (Our stores were out so I used Kroger brand)

    • 1 Large Shallot, finely minced

    • ¼ cup of Red Bell Pepper, very finely chopped

    • ¼ cup of Celery, very finely chopped.

For the corn:

  • 4 Ears of Corn, not cleaned. They need to be in the husk.
  • 1 Stick of Unsalted Butter, softened

  • 2 tsp of Chili Powder

  • Zest of 1 Lime

  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Preparation

    • 1) In a small skillet over medium heat, sauté the shallot, pepper and celery with the 2 tbsp of olive oil until tender. About 5 minutes or so. Let it cool for about 10 minutes.
    • 2) In a large bowl mix together all of the ingredients except for the crab meat and panko bread crumbs. Mix everything to combine and add in the crab. Gently fold in the crab meat making sure you don’t break it to much. Cover with plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge for about 35 minutes.
    • 3) Preheat about ½ cup of olive oil in a non stick skillet over medium high heat. Put the panko bread crumbs on a large plate and set aside.
    • 4) Take the crab mixture and gently form medium size crab cakes (you should be able to get 6 or 7 out of this mixture but you can definitely make these bite size for an appetizer) and dredge them in the panko bread crumbs shaking off any access. Fry for a couple minutes on each side or until golden crispy on both sides. Serve with a fabulous tartar sauce and enjoy!
    • If you don’t want to bread them in the panko bread crumbs then don’t bother, they are delicious either way!
    • For the corn, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and place the corn in the oven directly on the rack in the husk and everything. This is the best way to cook corn, I promise. It just makes it so incredibly sweet and delicious.
    • In a small bowl mix together the butter, chili powder, lime zest and season with salt and pepper to taste. Smear on the cooked corn and dig in!
    • The chili lime butter is a great thing to have on hand. It’s great to jazz up any roasted or steamed vegetable but it is also great on grilled fish, chicken, or even steak. Give it a try I promise it will not go to waste. One of the things I love to do is to stuff it under the skin of a whole chicken and it makes the meat taste divine after it has roasted.
  • Serve tarter sauce, hot sauce and top that crab with arugula!!!  Enjoy

Thank you again!

Peace and Blessings

Cabbage Bhaji

This recipe deserves it’s own post, I know I posted this before with a combo of Jamaican Shrimp but Cabbage Bhaji makes a great side and topping on many other things!  Since trying this recipe I have had it in bread and with rice alone.  It’s additive!  You know one of these days I’m sure I’m going to run into a recipe that makes me cringe but until then I love the fact that each new recipe I try turns out to taste so Good!  Lets Grub!

There are many benefits and treatments that cabbage is used for and of course the carrots are good for the eyes.  Since I wear glasses I try to keep my prescription from getting any worse.  New glasses are not cheap.  I love my contacts more though 🙂  Check out some nutrition info on Health Food Nutrition a site I trust!

Again here is the recipe on youtube!
