Prime's Crab Cakes - A Recipe from Chef Peter Masiello

Earlier this week we did an interview with Chef Peter Masiello of Prime and Il Bacio. Read our interview with Chef Peter here and here.  Chef Peter agreed to share his crabcakes recipe.

Prime's Crab Cakes

12 oz Jumbo Lump Crab

3 oz fresh squeezed lime juice

2 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice

2 oz panco bread crumbs

2 oz mayonnaise

1 ea small red pepper, minced

1 ea small red onion, minced

2 oz old bay seasoning

1 oz chives, minced

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl, and incorporate being sure not to break up the lump crab..the mixture should be moist but also be able to form a cake (3oz each)..if it's too dry you can add a touch more mayo or lemon juice and if it's to moist you may add a touch more panco.

Form the mixture into 3 oz cakes and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. When chilled, you may sauté or bake until golden brown and serve with or over your favorite salad.

Join us for an evening of art, music, fashion and great food as Broward-Palm Beach New Times presents Artopia 2011 at Il Bacio on February 23rd. Get the details here.
