Crab cakes....thinking out loud
Sat, 05/7/11 5:02 PM
Ok, just pondering. Fry some bacon, separate grease (maybe add a little butter), add flour to make a roux. Thin roux with heavy cream or half and half, add crab base, thicken, set aside to cool.
Gently fold into fresh crab meat, portion into 3oz patties, roll in herbed bread crumbs (bread crumbs, thyme, granulated garlic, granulated onion, S&P, processed in Robo).
Pan fry and serve.
Did a quick google search and couldn't find much like this, maybe it's a bad idea?
