Cooking Light ~ Corn

Our Virtual Supper Club is doing a little something different this month. We've added a blog hop to our Virtual Supper Club~ like a progressive dinner!
We are challenged to go to to find a recipe that is made with corn. In the past we have traveled to china town, celebrated seasons and event. This month it is the celebration of corn~ I guess that makes it a corny celebration. This recipe is one I was really looking forward to making

Curried Corn Crab Cakes
3/4 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pound lump crabmeat, shells removed
1/3 cup low-fat mayonnaise
3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
2 large egg whites
10 tablespoon dry breadcrumbs, divided
4 teaspoons vegetable oil
Lime wedges
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add first 5 ingredients; saute 4 minutes or until vegetables are soft. Place mixture in a large bowl; cool completely. Stir in crabmeat; set aside.
Combine mayonnaise and the next 5 ingredients (mayonnaise through egg whites) in a small bowl. Gently fold mayonnaise mixture into crab mixture. Stir in 7 tablespoons breadcrumbs. Divide mixture into 8 (3/4-inch-thick) patties. Dredge patties in 3 tablespoons breadcrumbs.

Heat oil in pan over medium-high heat. Place patties in pan; cook 4 minutes. Turn patties, and cover pan; cook 4 minutes or until done. I served mine with a Cucumber Sauce from Southern Living.

Now let's see what everyone else has brought for our Corny Celebration!
Jamie has made Double Cornbread
Val is bringing a Creamed Corn with Bacon and Leeks
Helene has brought dessert with a Lemon Cornmeal Cookies
MaryAnn brought the salad with Greens and Roasted Corn and Pepper Salad
Don't forget, that y'all are welcome to join in our virtual supper!

Y'all enjoy~

This is a great dish that you prepared for the Virtual Supper Club. Looks so good Sandi.

Jamie said...

I love crab cakes and this is definitely a different version than my usual Maryland style ones. I bet the corn and crab went well together. Looks great!

Pam said...

This looks so good. I have to read more about this virtual supper club!

Mary Ann said...

I love the sound of these crab cakes, especially because of the curry powder. They look fantastic!
