  • Makes
    10 palm sized crab cakes
Ingredients

  • 16 ounces

    crab meat (cleaned)

  • 2 tablespoons

    plain yogurt

  • 1/2 cup

    parsley chopped finely

  • 1 teaspoon

    toasted smoked paprika

  • 1

    egg

  • 1/2 teaspoon

    sea salt

  • 1/2 cup

    panko (toasted)

  • 1/2 cup

    panko (for coating crab cakes)

  • 4 tablespoons

    avocado oil (or vegetable oil for frying)

  • 3 cups

    corn cut from cob (apx 3 cobs)

  • 1/2 cup

    onion diced

  • 2 tablespoons

    whole cumin toasted and ground coarsely

  • 1

    lime zested and juiced

  • 1

    large clove garlic pressed

  • 1 cup

    sweet small peppers diced (orange, red or yellow)

  • 1 cup

    cherry tomatoes halved

  • 1

    large haas avocado diced

  • 1/2 cup

    cilantro chopped finely

  • 2 cups

    micro greens or arugula

  • plain yogurt, Sriracha, and smoked sea salt to taste

  • 1/4 teaspoon

    sea salt
Directions
  1. Heat 2 tbsp avocado oil in saute pan and cook onions until caramelized. Add fresh corn and cook until warmed through but still crunchy. Set aside in bowl to cool. Add cumin, lime zest, lime juice, garlic, peppers, tomatoes, avocado and cilantro. Mix and add salt to taste. (You can also add a hot pepper here if you like—my family can’t stand the heat, so I keep it mellow.) This corn mixture can be kept in the fridge while you finish the crab cakes.
  2. Combine crab, 2 tbsp yogurt, parsley, paprika, egg, 1/2 tsp sea salt, and 1/2 cup toasted panko in bowl. Mix and form apx 10 crab cakes—coat outside of crab cakes with extra panko. Heat cast iron skillet with 1 tbsp avocado oil and cook crab cakes in two batches. Keep warm.
  3. Place micro greens or arugula on plate, add corn salad and crab cakes. Garnish with plain yogurt, Sriracha, and smoked sea salt.
