Papaya MustardHere is the really simple recipe... go for it!
1# of good quality lump crab meat, cleaned
Zest from a Meyer Lemon (or Eureka if you can't find a Meyer)
1/8 cup of fresh lemon juice (Meyer is preferred)
2 plump shallots, minced finely
1/4 cup of fresh minced herbs, in this case I used garlic chives, chives, chervil & flat leaf parsley
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Japanese Panko crumbs (I use the honey panko for this, but plain are fine too)
Lots of freshly grated black pepper
Stir all together and allow to sit for 15 minutes.
Turn the cakes and allow them to brown on the other side. Remove to a rack to rest for a minute and then serve.
