Ingredients:

  • 1 c. Hy-Vee mayonnaise, divided
  • 1/2 c. Hy-Vee sour cream
  • 1 to 2 canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Hy-Vee lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp Hy-Vee salt
  • 4 fresh ears of corn or 2 cups Hy-Vee frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
  • 3 tbsp Hy-Vee butter, divided
  • 1/4 c. finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 c. finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 Hy-Vee large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp stone-ground mustard
  • 1 tsp Hy-Vee Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/3 c. Hy-Vee plain bread crumbs, divided
  • 12 oz lump crab meat
  • 1/4 c. cornmeal

All you do

  1. For chipotle cream, stir together 1/2 cup mayonnaise, sour cream, chipotle peppers, lemon juice and salt in a small bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  2. If using fresh corn, cut the kernels off the cobs. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet. Add corn, onion and bell pepper. Cook about 5 minutes or until onions and peppers are soft. Cool 10 minutes.
  3. Stir together eggs, remaining 1/2 cup mayonnaise, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and cayenne pepper in a large bowl. Stir in cooled corn, onion and peppers. Gently fold in 2/3 cup bread crumbs and crab meat. Chill mixture in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  4. To make jumbo corn-crab cakes, using a 1/2-cup measuring cup, shape crab meat mixture into 8 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. To make mini corn-crab cakes, using a 1/4-cup measuring cup, shape crab meat mixture into 16 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Place on baking sheet and chill patties 10 minutes for easier handling.
  5. Stir together remaining 2/3 cup bread crumbs and cornmeal in a 9-inch pie plate. Dip patties into crumb mixture, turning to coat.
  6. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add patties and cook until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes per side for jumbo cakes and 3 to 4 minutes for mini cakes. Repeat using remaining tablespoon butter and remaining patties. Serve with chipotle cream.
