Crabcakes with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
« on: November 25, 2009, 09:48:27 PM »

Fixed this a couple nights ago. Crab cakes with a roasted red pepper sauce. Was really easy to make. Make your favorite crab cake and then make the sauce which was just a 15 oz can of tomato sauce, a 16 oz jar of roasted red bell peppers, minced a few cloves of garlic, puree with blender or food processor. I used my new immersion blender and it worked great. Bring to a simmer. Add a pint of heavy cream and a cup or two of fresh shredded parmesan cheese, stir well and bring back to simmer. In another bowl take 4-6 oz of sour cream and whisk in heavy cream until thinned a bit. Place in a squirt bottle or use a plating/sauce spoon. Place the pepper sauce on the plate. Place the crab cake and then drizzle the sour cream sauce around it. Keep warm. Was a very fast, easy and delicious sauce for the crab cake. I served it prior to a serving of my Red Pepper Risotto. Was a great meal.

Wish I would of took a pic of the cakes I made last night. I used the jumbo lump crab meat in them. Big 'ol meaty chunks of crab that bested that pic. I normally use the regular lump meat though as it is $6.00 a pound cheaper.

Plating and presentation get points too. Smurfe - the dish looks great!
Ah, wait just read the "blog" and Narvin's crabcake is from a Chesapeake Bay restaurant. :P
