Recipe: Creole Crabcakes with Chipotle-Honey Mashed Potatoes and Remoulade

Our creole crabcakes are a favorite at any event! Our crabcake recipe serves about 25.


    1 pound jumbo lump crabmeat
    4 cloves garlic, minced and roasted in olive oil
    4 ounces mayonnaise
    Pinch chopped fresh tarragon leaves
    Pinch fresh chopped thyme leaves
    Dash seafood seasoning (recommended: Old Bay)
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Breading (all-purpose flour, 3 eggs, lightly beaten with a little water, and panko bread crumbs)
    Olive oil
    Chipotle-Honey Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Corn, recipe follows
    Remoulade, recipe follows
    Thyme sprigs, for garnish


Mix crabmeat, garlic, mayonnaise, herbs and seafood seasoning. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Using the #3 circle pastry cutter, pack with 2 tablespoons of the crab mixture. Form into cakes and freeze until ready to fry. To fry, place the flour in a shallow dish or bowl. Place the eggs in a separate bowl and the panko in another bowl. Dredge each crab cake in the flour, then the egg, then the bread crumbs, shaking off any excess. Fry quickly in olive oil. To assemble, place disk of mashed potatoes on top of crab cakes and heat together in a preheated 400 degree F oven until the top is crisp. Finish with a dollop of remoulade and a sprig of thyme.

Cook potatoes until soft and drain. While potatoes are cooking, combine the cream and butter in a small saucepan and warm over medium heat until the butter melts.
