  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 5 each cornichon pickles

  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard


Instructions for Dill Remoulade:

  1. NOTE: You will need an immersion blender for this recipe, with the matching blending cup. If you do not have one, use a small food processor.
  2. In the mixing cup, add all of the ingredients (listed above) and blend for 10–15 seconds until just combined.
  3. Note: You do not want to blend too much, or it will turn to liquid.
  4. Set aside, and keep cool in the fridge.

Instructions for Crab Cakes:

  1. Using a cast-iron pan, heat the pan with enough oil to fully coat the bottom.Note: I use reserved bacon grease, from cooking bacon, but you can also use avocado or coconut oil. You want the pan to be very hot prior to frying.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add crab meat, mayo, eggs, old bay, and dijon mustard.
  3. Stir to combine, but do not over-mix. You want some crab lumps.
  4. Using a measuring cup (I use ⅓ cup size for medium crab cakes), scoop some of the crab mix and carefully drop into hot oil. Fry on each side until golden brown - 2 to 3 minutes each side. (NOTE: You do not want to touch the crabcakes while frying. This could cause them to fall apart. Just place it gently, and flip once.)
  5. Place on a plate lined with paper towels as they rest, and continue frying the rest until you’ve used all of the crab mixture.
  6. Serve!
  7. Note: Serve with your favorite grilled veggies (i.e., asparagus), or serve over arugula!
