Ingredients

  • For the Cakes:
  • 2 cups Crab (I used the can from Costco)
  • 1 pkg. Borsin Cheese with Garlic and Herbs
  • ½ cup Onions finely chopped
  • ½ cup Red Pepper finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Dill or Cilantro (either is good)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Panko crumbs (I used already seasoned Panko)For the Sauce:
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 medium Onion finely chopped
  • 3 – 4 cloves Garlic
  • 1 large Tomato chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 cup Cream Cheese ( I like the Chive and Onion one)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese (not grated like the Kraft kind)
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup Chicken Stock (or Veg Stock)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. For the Cakes:
  2. Sauté the Onions and Red Peppers till tender. Dont over cook them. Set them aside to cool a bit.
  3. Put the Crab and the Borsin Cream Cheese in the bowl mix and the sautéed veggies and herb of your choice and salt and pepper mix thoroughly. Roll the mixture into small balls, and then flatten to make a cake shape.
  4. Roll the Crab Cakes into the Panko Crumbs. Set the cake on a plate and put in the fridge for an hour so when you cook them they will hold their shape.
  5. Fry them in oil and a bit of butter for taste till they are nicely brown on both side
    For the Sauce:
  6. Heat Oil in a small pot. When its hot, throw in the Onions and sauté for a few minutes. Then add the Garlic and the Tomatoes. Cook these for a bit until the Tomatoes just melt into a sauce.
  7. Add the Cajun Seasoning and the Cream Cheese and stir till the Cheese melts. Add 1/2 cup of the Chicken or Veg stock. Then add the Parmesan Cheese and stir till it melts. It might get stringy, but just keep cooking it. It will melt into the sauce.
  8. Puree the sauce with a hand held blender or in your blender until its very smooth and put it back into the pot.
  9. Add a bit more Stock until the sauce reaches your desired consistency. Salt and Pepper to taste and your good to go.

Recipe Notes

You are going to love this sauce and want to put it on everything! Try it as a dip for Bacon Wrapped Scallops, Pan Fried Prawns, or over Chicken Breast. Or just drink it lol.
