Ingredients

•1 Pound of Crab, fresh, cleaned and shelled
•1 Egg
•½ Cup Bread Crumbs
•2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
•1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
•3 Tablespoons Italian Parsley, fresh chopped
•1 Teaspoon Lemon juice, fresh squeezed
•¼ Cup Corn, trimmed from the cob, fresh, coarsely chopped

Aioli Sauce Alessio
•4 Egg yokes
•6 Cloves of garlic, fresh
•1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
•½ Cup Canola Oil
•½ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
•½ Teaspoon Kosher Sea Salt
•½ Teaspoon White Pepper
•Juice from ½ Lemon

Instructions


Thoroughly mix all ingredients except the crab. Gently fold in the crab. Form cakes — larger if serving as a main course (4-6), or smaller if serving as an appetizer (8-10). Cook in a large sauté pan until browned and hot all the way through— approximately 10 -12 minutes. Do not over cook. Crab cakes can also be baked at 375 degrees F for 15- 20 minutes. Serve with homemade Aioli Sauce.

Aioli Sauce Alessio
In a blender on slowest speed — blend egg yokes. While slowly blending, add all other ingredients. Blend the two oils into one container with a pour spout — very slowly stream the oil into the blender mixture, occasionally pushing sauce down with a plastic spatula. Use enough oil to reach your desired consistency. The size of the eggs affects how much oil you need - you may not need all of the oil.
