PPQ – Green Chile Crab Cakes
Sunday again which means Project Pastry Queen! This weekâ€™s recipe was chosen by Tara of Smells Like Home and she chose the Green Chile Crab Cake with Tomatillo Salsa. I am definitely not a crab person so it was nice to knock another off the list that I never would have tried.
I think they turned out very well. There were a lot of components to these crab cakes so I worried the actual crab would get lost but everything worked together to spotlight the crab. The crispy panko on the outside was the best part though!
I didnâ€™t make the tomatillo salsa. I just donâ€™t really like the stuff. I do keep a jar in the fridge for recipes like this but I thought the smokiness of the salsa I had really overpowered the crab and I ended up scraping most of it off the crab cakes. Maybe The Pastry Queen version wouldnâ€™t have been so bad. Try it and let me know. ;)
Tara has the recipe on her blog. Itâ€™s a good one, you wonâ€™t regret making it!
