Crab Cakes with Sweet and Sour Orange Sauce
- Active Time 25m
- Total Time 40m
This is adapted from the recipe for crab cakes served at one of San Francisco's best French restaurants, La Folie.
- For the Crab Cakes:
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1/3 cup shredded raw celery root
- 10 ounces crab meat
- 3/4 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- For the Sauce:
- 1/2 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup finely julienned carrot
1/2 head frisee lettuce, torn into pieces
- 1 ripe but firm avocado, peeled, pitted, cubed
- 1 cup red and yellow cherry tomatoes, halved
FOR THE CRAB CAKES:
Mix the first 3 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Mix in the celery root, crab meat and breadcrumbs. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Shape the mixture into eight 3/4-inch-thick cakes. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Fry the crab cakes until golden brown and heated through, about 4 minutes per side.
FOR THE SAUCE:
Simmer the vinegar, orange juice and carrot in small saucepan until the liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup, about 8 minutes.
Divide the frisee lettuce evenly among 4 plates. Top each with 2 crab cakes. Garnish with avocado and tomatoes. Drizzle the sauce around the crab cakes and serve.
