110g diced celery
3 baps
Tomato, sliced for garnish
Lettuce, for garnish
1 lemon, cut into wedges for garnish
475ml remoulade sauce, recipe follows
1 tsp Dijon mustard
For remoulade sauce:
480g mayonnaise
3 tbsps green sweet pickle relish
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsps capers
1 tbsp anchovy paste
2 tsps Dijon mustard
1 tbsp lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning (recommended: Old Bay Seasoning)
2 tablespoons diced green pepper
2 tablespoons diced red pepper
2 tablespoons white wine
450g lump crabmeat, drained
110g seasoned breadcrumbs
40g grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsps lemon juice
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tbsps chopped parsley leaves
1) In a medium frying pan over medium heat, cook the garlic in 3 tablespoons of the olive oil for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned

2) Add the onion, spring onion, celery and peppers and cook for about 5 minutes more, until soft.

3) Add the wine and simmer for 1 minute, then remove the pan from the heat. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl.

4) Add the crabmeat and mix well. Add the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, lemon juice, eggs, parsley, mustard, seasoning, salt and pepper, and mix again until everything is evenly combined. Then, divide the mixture into six patties.

5) Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper. Pour the remaining olive oil into the frying pan and heat, then fry the crab cakes for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until fully cooked and lightly browned.

6) Serve two crab cakes per bap, with tomato slices, lettuce, lemon wedges and remoulade sauce on the side.


Remoulade sauce:
1) Combine all the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and mix well. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. It is best to refrigerate for several hours to allow the flavours to marry.

Cook's Note: If you can't buy seafood seasoning, you can easily make your own by combining 1 tablespoon celery seeds, 3 whole bay leaves, 3/4 teaspoon brown mustard seeds, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper corns, 10 allspice berries, 10 whole cloves, 1/2 teaspoon paprika. Grind in a mortar or coffee grinder.
