Crab Cake with "Tubby Olive" Aoli + Roasted Corn Salsa
Preparation Time: approximately 35-40 minutes
Serving Size: 1 crabcake + ¼ cup salsa, Serves about 5
2 Slices on The Slice Plan
1 lb crabmeat, jumbo lump or backfin (shells removed)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp hot sauce
¼ cup breadcrumbs
1 TB Old Bay seasoning
"Tubby Olive" Aoli:
½ egg yolk, broken and whisked | ½ tsp lemon juice | 1/3 tsp white wine vinegar | 1/8 tsp Dijon mustard | 1/8 tsp kosher salt | ¼ cup Cilantro & Roasted Onion Olive Oil (‘Tubby Olive’ brand: purchase HERE)
1 cup corn kernels, frozen/thawed or fresh
½ jalapeño, diced small
½ red bell pepper, diced
2 stalks scallions, sliced thin
1 ½ tsp lime juice
1.5 TB Cilantro & Roasted Onion Olive Oil (‘Tubby Olive’ brand)*
To make "Tubby Olive" Aoli: Combine all ingredients, except oil, in food processor until well mixed. Drizzle olive oil until desired consistency - should be thick and light in color. Set aside under refrigeration.
To make Corn Salsa: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roast corn for 15-20 minutes or until browned on all sides; cool. Combine all ingredients. Set aside.
Meanwhile, combine crab, finished aoli, egg, Worcestershire, hot sauce, breadcrumbs, and Old Bay seasoning by hand. Make 5 equal sized balls out of mixture, the shape of a large hockey puck. Set aside.
Change oven settings to BROIL. If you have a high/low broil option, choose low. Place crab cakes on greased baking sheet and broil 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and internal temperature of 145 degrees has been reached. Remove from oven.*
*When crab cakes are broiled, missed shells will rise to the top. This is a great opportunity to remove them prior to serving!
