Sesame Crab and Brown Rice Cakes
Ingredients
2
eggs, lightly beaten
1
tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1
tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
2
teaspoons bottled hot pepper sauce (optional)
2
teaspoons honey
2
teaspoons sweet rice wine (mirin)
1
teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/4
teaspoon kosher salt
1
cup panko (Japanese-style) bread crumbs
1/4
cup chopped green onions
2
tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
2
tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
1
pound cooked lump crabmeat, flaked, or three 6-ounce cans crabmeat, drained, flaked, and cartilage removed (about 3 cups)
3
cups cooked brown rice, cooled
1
tablespoon peanut oil or cooking oil
1/2
cup Miso Vinaigrette (see recipe below)
 
Sesame seeds (optional)
Directions
  1. In a large bowl, combine eggs, soy sauce, rice vinegar, hot pepper sauce (if desired), honey, rice wine, sesame oil, and salt. Stir in bread crumbs, green onions, the 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, and the cilantro. Add crabmeat and cooked rice; mix well. Using moistened hands, shape crab mixture into eighteen 1/2-inch-thick patties.*
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat peanut oil over medium heat. Add one-third of the crab cakes; cook about 10 minutes or until golden brown and heated through, turning once. If crab cakes brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium-low. Keep warm in a 300 degree F oven while cooking the remaining crab cakes (add additional peanut oil as necessary).
  3. Serve crab cakes with Miso Vinaigrette and, if desired, sprinkle with additional sesame seeds. Makes 6 servings.
