20160106_193931New Year and new dinner with friends! This week Kris said she wanted crab cakes so that is what we had:) I think it has been 2 years since I made some crab cakes, not sure why I waited so long to make them again. I forgot how tasty they are!20160106_182833Crab cakes are a fairly easy thing to make. Just gather up all the ingredients and get started. For the bread crumbs I found an excellent GF panko style crumb. These worked great.20160106_183900First mix all ingredients, except crab and bread crumbs, in a large bowl. Next gently stir in the crab and finally mix in the bread crumbs.20160106_192902Form the mixture into patties. Add 3 tablespoons of oil to a cast iron pan and heat over medium high heat. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side.20160106_191711Check out the nice golden crust! These are coming along just fine. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels, to remove excess oil. 20160106_180656All good crab cakes need a good sauce to go with them This one is simple and tasty. The horseradish gives it just the right amount of heat. 20160106_181533Mix all ingredients together and chill for an hour before serving. Kris made big salad to go along with the cakes. We also had some sweet potato fries and tater tots! A great dinner with friends. Cheers!
