PPQ – Green Chile Crab Cakes

March 20, 2011 in crab, Project Pastry Queen by amanda

Sunday again which means Project Pastry Queen! This week’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 didn’t make the tomatillo salsa. I just don’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 wouldn’t have been so bad. Try it and let me know. ;)

Tara has the recipe on her blog. It’s a good one, you won’t regret making it!
