Crab Cakes with Avocado Sauce

20120805-091221.jpg

I whipped these up Friday night for a quick and easy dinner.

Ingredients:
2 avocados
1/4 c sour cream
4 TBSP lime juice
2 TBSP chopped chives
Salt and pepper
16 oz crab meat
2 jalapeños, minced
3/4 c mayo
1/2 tsp old bay seasoning

Combine avocado, sour cream, lime juice, chives in a food processor, pulse until smooth. Put in a container and place in fridge until ready to use.

Combine crab, peppers, old bay and mayo in a large bowl. Shape into 6 patties. Chill for at least 30 minutes.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook crab cakes about 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Serve with sauce.

Makes 6 cakes.
