I have a hankering for crab cakes but since I tried the crab cakes @ The Cabo Villas Beach Resorts in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, I cannot eat just any old crab cake. I. NEED. TO. DUPLICATE. THIS. RECIPE. OR. DIE. TRYING:
I am looking for a recipe that involves cream cheese, fresh crab and fresh chiles (jalapeno or serrano, I think) and very little breading. This one was presented with 2 sauces. One was yellow and has an asian flare. It was sweet like a plum sauce. It could of been mango but was very delicate. I could substitute a sweet chili sauce (I guess). The other sauce that dotted the plate was what I swear is Sriracha so I am not worried about duplicating that. Using Sriracha will be fine. Any suggestions? Any recipes to share??
I did...I begged! It is against "their policies" Booo. I would gladly pay good money for these crab cakes in any LA restaurant. Too bad I cannot find ones similiar enough.
Shoot. If I can get this recipe down I will open up my own restaurant and sell only these crab cakes. I'll take over the world! They don't know what a gem they have on their hands. Pure brilliance!
Okay Girl, the menu for Baja Cantina is online and describes the sauces as "Mango chipotle sauce and tomato papaya chutney" (those are some expensive crab cakes @ $75 bucks for an app..whoa). Gourmet has a kick ass recipe that would pair up w/ these sauces nicely. They have sriracha, scallions, peppers, heavy cream, etc., etc. Check it out and good luck! http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...
FYI, Bon Appetit has a monthly piece called RSVP where folks write in and request recipes from hotels, restaurants, etc. You could try that if you wanted the exact recipe.
