Easy Crab Cakes
- 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 2 green onions, finely chopped
- ¼ cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
- 12 oz. fresh crab meat (or two 6 oz. cans) drained, flaked and cartilage removed
- 1 tbsp. butter
In a large bowl, combine 1/3 cup bread crumbs, green onions, red pepper, egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic powder and cayenne. Fold in crab meat.
Divide mixture into eight portions and shape into 2 inch balls. Place the remaining bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Gently coat in bread crumbs and shape into 1/2-inch thick patties.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add crab cakes and cook 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

Wine Pairing - Crémant d’Alsace
Ranging from pale gold to a gorgeous salmon color—depending on the grapes—Crémant d’Alsace is a bubbly that fits all occasions and cuisines. Elegant and mineral-driven, these vibrant sparkling wines are made in the traditional method. Brut (white) sparklers will express toast, white flowers and citrus, and Rosé Crémants will be lush with bright, red berry fruits and rose petals.
