  1. THE CRAB CAKES: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Combine all of the ingredients except the bread crumbs for coating, the oil and the tartar sauce. Try not to break up the crab meat too much while you're mixing. Form the mix into eight 3 inch to 3 1/2 inch by 1 inch thick crab cakes or possibly 30 to 40 hors d' oeuvres. Coat the cakes on both sides with the additional bread crumbs, patting the crumbs lightly into the cakes. If you are making large cakes, put about 1/4 c. oil into a 10 to 12 inch saute/fry pan and cook over medium heat. Cook 4 cakes at a time , 4 min per side. They should be nicely browned on both sides and heated through. Keep the 4 cooked cakes hot in the oven while you prepare the remaining 4. Use fresh oil for the second batch. If your making mini cakes, put the entire 1/2 c. oil in the saute/fry pan and fry 10 to 15 at a time, turning once till dark brown. You may need to replace the oil once between batches. Keep cooked mini cakes hot in the oven while you cook the rest.
  2. TARTAR SAUCE: Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and chill till ready to use.
  3. Makes approximately 3 c..
  4. JALAPENO HOLLANDAISE SAUCE: Heat the butter and reserve. Combine the egg yolks, jalapeno pepper and water in the top of a double boiler over warm, but not boiling water, and stir briskly with a wire whisk till the mix is light and fluffy and the consistancy of light mayonnaise. Remove the top of the double boiler from the heat and slowly add in the butter in a thin stream, while continuing to whip the mix. Season the mix with the salt and lemon juice to taste.
  5. Makes about 11/2 c. of sauce.
  6. NOTES : This is one of my favorite seafood cookbooks. Just looking at the pictures makes you hungry !
