3 tablespoons butter
1 green onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper
1 clove garlic minced
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Cayenne pepper to taste
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 egg
½ teaspoon parsley
1 lb crabmeat with no shells
¼ cup grated parmesan
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onion, bell pepper and garlic in the butter until pepper is limp or about 3 minutes. Add the cream, mustard, and cayenne and mix well. Add ½ cup breadcrumbs and egg and parsley – mix well. Gently fold in the crabmeat.

Form the mixture into 8 patties about ½ inch thick. Combine the remaining ¼ cup breadcrumbs and parmesan in a bowl. Pat it onto each side of the patties. Refrigerate till firm – about 2 hours.

Combine the oil and remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the skillet. Sauté the cakes in hot mixture for about 3 min on each side – golden brown then put in a 400 degree oven for 7-10 minutes…this firms them.
