  1. For the Crab Cakes
  2. • In a medium mixing bowl combine mayonnaise, creole mustard, egg, worcestershire, Tabasco, lemon juice and chives. Mix thoroughly. Season to taste with sea salt and black pepper.
  3. • Gently fold the crab meat into the mixture. Mix thoroughly being gentle as not to break up the crab meat.
  4. • Gently add the panko bread crumbs to the mixture and fold together until all moisture has been absorbed.
  5. • Gently form 2 to 3 ounce cakes in a ring mold. If a ring mold is not available form by hand.
  6. • Place crab cakes into the refrigerator for later use.
  7. For the Charred Tomato Vinaigrette
  8. • Remove the skin from the tomatoes. (Bring a medium sauce pot filled ½ way with water to a simmer. Add the tomatoes to the simmering water and blanch for 30 seconds. Remove and place in a bowl of ice water. Once cool remove from the ice water and the skin should peel away with your hands.)
  9. • Preheat a grill on high heat. If a grill is not available broil or sauté.
  10. • Cut the tomatoes in half and remove the seeds. Toss the tomatoes with the vegetable oil.
  11. • Place the tomatoes on the grill and turn every 1 minute. Remove the tomatoes from the heat.
  12. • Medium dice the tomatoes and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add the other ingredients and season to taste.
  13. To prepare the dish:
  14. 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  15. 1 lb Mixed Greens or Fresh Herb Salad

  17. • Place a little mixed greens or fresh herb salad in the center of the plate. Place the warm crab cake on top and drizzle with the charred tomato vinaigrette.
