for—order your Box Hill crab cakes and dig in!
Open-Faced Crab Cake Burgers with Delicious Red Pepper Dressing
To start this awesome recipe, start with the ingredients for the dressing:
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp. minced and drained roasted red peppers (jarred is fine!)
- 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 1 tbsp. ketchup
- 1 tbsp. hot chili sauce like sriracha
- ¼ tbsp. finely grated lemon peel
Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste.
This will be used as the delicious spread on the buns of each crab cake burger.
Next, get the ingredients together to cook your crab cake burgers. You’ll need:
- 3 ciabatta rolls, halved horizontally for serving
- 2 tbsp. grapeseed or vegetable oil
- 6 leaves of crisp romaine lettuce, trimmed to 6 inches in length
Preheat the broiler in your oven after chilling your Box Hill crab cakes for at least an
hour in the refrigerator. If you don’t take the time to properly chill the crab cakes in
advance, they won’t be able to hold their shape and fry properly and you’ll be stuck
eating mushed-together reassembled crab cakes!
Take the ciabatta rolls and spread each side with butter. Broil the ciabatta rolls,
butter side up, until they are golden (about two minutes). Take them out of the oven
and cover them to keep them warm.
Next, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with the 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet on
medium-high heat. Working slowly, add the crab cake burgers to the skillet pan.
Sauté them until they turn perfectly golden brown (about 5 minutes per side).
Place one roll on each plate, top with lettuce and a crab burger, and spoon the
delicious red pepper dressing over the top. Bon appetite!
