Life is simple. It is our expectations that seem to complicate everything.
For dinner all you need is the right bottle of white or rose, summer, crab cakes and chipotle mayonnaise.
For each pound of crab you will need:
1 tsp seafood seasoning
two tablespoons mayo
two tablespoons sour cream
1/3 cup bread crumbs
half a bell pepper (red, orange or yellow, they're so much more festive than pedestrian green)
Minced chives (optional, adds a nifty bit of color)
Mince your bell pepper and sautee in a tablespoon of butter until soft. Cool.
Mix all of the above ingredients together. Form into manageable patties, about a tablespoon or saute, and
saute briefly until browned on both sides. Serve on a bed of arugula. If you don't like chipotle mayo blend some wasabi into a tablespoon of mayo and sour cream. Kapow!
