Crab Cake Scallop


Mini Crab Cake Scallops Ingredients:

½ Dozen Cameron's Seafood Maryland Crab Cakes
1 Cup Panko Breadcrumbs
3 Tbsp. Butter, for frying
Microgreens, for garnish
Cayenne Pepper, for garnish

Mango Sauce

1 Ripe Mango, cubed
2 Tbsp. Apricot Preserves
1 Tbsp. Lime Juice

You will need:

Hammer Stahl 10.5" Fry Pan

Biscuit Cutters

Drizzle Spoon

High Powered Blendtec Blender

Crab-Cake Scallops:

Step 1
Select a smaller-sized biscuit cutter to use as a scallop-shape mold for a one- or two-bite crab cake scallop. Pack mixture into the biscuit-cutter and push formed crab cake onto a plate.

Step 2
Pour panko breadcrumbs into a shallow bowl or dish. Carefully roll each crab cake in breadcrumbs to coat completely.

Step 3
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Melt butter in skillet then add crab cakes 3 or 4 at a time. Work in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.

Step 4
Fry crab cakes until golden brown on each side, usually for 2-3 minutes per side. Splash hot butter with a spoon onto the edges of the crab cakes to brown. Remove pan from heat when cakes are done

Step 5
Place a crab cake onto a scallop-shell plate. Drizzle prepared mango sauce (recipe below) with drizzle spoon over cooked crab cakes, sprinkle with a pinch of cayenne pepper. Garnish with microgreens. Pro Tip: Use tweezers, like the Mercer Food Tweezers, to control placement and arrangement of fragile microgreens.

Mango Sauce:

Step 1
Add all sauce ingredients in a blender on high speed until pureed.
