Ingredients

Remoulade:
  • 1 shallot, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon capers 
  • 1 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives 
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard 
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 
Crab Cakes:
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped 
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped 
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 serrano chile, seeded and finely chopped 
  • 1 pound lump crabmeat, shredded 
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil 

Directions

Special equipment: food processor

For the remoulade: Pulse the shallots and capers in a food processor until finely chopped. Add the mayonnaise, chives, mustard, smoked paprika, salt and pepper; pulse until well combined. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust. (The remoulade will keep, refrigerated, for 4 days. It is best made a day ahead.)

For the crab cakes: Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the onions and peppers and saute until soft, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Let cool to room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, chiles, crabmeat, 1 cup of the panko, mayonnaise, chives, parsley, salt, pepper and the cooled vegetables. Gently mix until well blended. Pack the crab mixture into a 1/4 cup measuring cup, then gently tap out into your hand and form into a patty. Place the patty on a baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the crab mixture. Spread the remaining 1 cup panko on a large plate. Dredge the crab cakes in panko on all sides.

Melt another 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. When hot, add the crab cakes in batches, flattening them a bit with the back of a spatula. Cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Between batches, add another tablespoon of butter and olive oil to the pan.

Place the browned crab cakes on a baking sheet and transfer to the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, until sizzling and heated through.

Serve the crab cakes with remoulade sauce on the side.
