The point of a crab cake is pure crab flavor, not filler, according to Nicholas Petti, chef-owner of Mendo Bistro in Fort Bragg. He won the Mendocino Crab & Wine Days Crabcake Cookoff in both 2002 and 2003 with these simple cakes.

Recipe Ingredients for Mendo Crab Cakes with spring mix

2.75 cup Lump Crab Meat
1.75 cup Panko
0.5 cup, chopped Onions, Spring Or Scallions
10 oz Spring Mix
3 tbsp Olive Oil
4 Teaspoon Juice

Recipe Directions for Mendo Crab Cakes with spring mix

  1. Preparation

  2. Sort through crab; remove and discard any bits of shell. In a bowl, combine crab, 3/4 cup panko, and green onions. Gently mix in 1/2 cup tarragon aioli just until mixture holds together.

  3. Press mixture firmly into eight equal patties about 3 inches wide; set slightly apart on waxed paper or foil. Pour remaining panko into a shallow bowl.

  4. Pour 1/3 cup oil into a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over medium-high heat. When hot, set each crab cake in panko, then, using a slotted spatula, turn, pressing gently to coat. Transfer crab cakes to pan, working in small batches. Cook until golden brown on the bottom, 3 to 4 minutes; turn gently and cook until browned on the other side and hot in the middle, 3 to 4 minutes longer. Transfer cakes as cooked, in a single layer, to a 12- by 15-inch baking sheet in a 200 oven and add remaining cakes to pan, adding more oil as needed. Discard any remaining panko
