One dish CAN please both picky kids and gourmet grown-ups. These recipes can be tweaked for each.
Crab cakes are equal parts yummy and elegant. The key to making sure that these fragile crab cakes don’t fall apart during the cooking process is to refrigerate the uncooked patties for a few hours before pan-frying them.
For Kids: This dish is very mild, and kids will enjoy these cakes burger-style, tucked in between buns with a touch of mayonnaise and ketchup.
For Adults: Serve the crab cakes over a bed of seasonal greens and top them with a red pepper mayonnaise: Diced red pepper, a touch of garlic, cayenne pepper, and mayonnaise mixed well.
