Wendell's Crabcakes

Wendell made these last night, and they were bloody brilliant. Can you tell I just watched a British segment of Undercover Boss, my new favorite TV show? 

Lacking in presentation on my part . . . I just grabbed the waxpaper-lined plate that the crabcakes were on, and totally flash-zapped this shot . . . this photo does not do it justice.  They were Da Best Crabcakes I Ever Ate. Wendell used the recipe from here.


The recipe is actually for a fancy sandwich so you can ignore some of the ingredients listed and just follow the directions for the crabcake portion which is:

Combine mayonnaise, egg, Dijon mustard and hot chili sauce in a large bowl and using a whisk, mix well. Add green onions, dill, parsley, bread crumbs, diced red pepper, lemon zest and lemon juice and salt and pepper. Mix all ingredients well.

Gently fold in crabmeat and mix gently trying not to break up the crabmeat. Carefully divide mixture into 6 patties and dust with flour. Place patties into saucepan with peanut oil. Saute on medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes and carefully turn and cook for 4 to 6 minutes on the other side.
