Mini Crab Cakes With Garlic-Chive Sauce
Mini Crab Cakes With Garlic-Chive Sauce is From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes around 10 minutes. A mixture of grain bread, mayonnaise, lump crabmeat, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so tasty.
Pick crabmeat, removing any bits of shell. Pulse bread slices in a blender or food processor 5 times or until finely crumbled. (Yield should be about 1 1/2 cups.)
Stir together mayonnaise and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Gently stir in breadcrumbs and crabmeat. Shape mixture into 16 (2-inch) cakes (about 2 Tbsp. each).
Cook cakes, in batches, on a hot, large griddle or nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-low heat 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Season with salt to taste. (Keep cakes warm in a 200 oven for up to 30 minutes.)
Serve with Garlic-Chive Sauce.
Note: For testing purposes, we used Sara Lee Soft & Smooth Whole Grain White Bread.
Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Muscadet, Riesling
Shellfish can be paired with Chardonnay, Muscadet, and Riesling. Buttery chardonnay is great for scallops, shrimp, crab, and lobster, while muscadet is a classic pick for mussels, oysters, and clams. If you've got some spice in your shellfish, a semi-dry riesling can balance out the heat. The Rochioli Estate Chardonnay with a 4.3 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 42 dollars per bottle.
Rochioli Estate ChardonnayThis wine is a fine example of the unique characteristics from the Rochioli property and the Russian River Valley. Aromas of ripe apple, tropical fruit, hazelnut and a touch of spice combine with the rich apple flavors and crisp acidity.
