Southern-Style Crab Cakes with Cool Lime Sauce

Ingredients

1 lime, for juice
1/4 cup light sour cream
1 cup light mayonnaise, divided
2 tablespoons country-style Dijon mustard, divided
1/4 cup green onions, coarsely chopped
1 (0.6-oz) packet zesty Italian dressing mix
26 round buttery crackers, divided
2 (8-oz) cups crabmeat
Cooking spray

Prep


-- Prepare sauce by combining sour cream, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon mustard, and juice of one-half lime. Chill until ready to serve.

2 teaspoons light sour cream
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt

Aprons Advice

  • Complete your meal with potatoes, a crusty baguette, and pineapple upside-down cake for dessert.
  • If you choose to use canned crabmeat, soak it in ice water 10 minutes, then drain/pat dry. This will help the crabmeat taste fresher.
