Videogame Recipes: Mirelurk Traders' Mirelurk Cakes

THIS RECIPE ASSUMES THE MIRELURK CAKES ARE BREADED, AND THAT MIRELURK EGGS ARE EQUIVALENT TO CHICKEN EGGS.

Ingredients:

  • 16 ounces crab meat, drained
  • 6 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 2 fresh red chili, minced OR 1 tablespoon dried crushed chili
  • 1 rosemary sprig, dried and crushed
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 4-6 eggs
  • 8 teaspoons mayo
  • 3 1/2 cups breadcrumbs OR rice cracker crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt OR 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Approx 1-1 1/2 cups oil, for frying

Instructions:

  1. Place crabmeat, onions, chili, lime juice, 2 eggs, rosemary, mayonaise, and 1 1/2 cups crumbs together, mix well until combined.
  2. Add up to 1/2 cup more breadcrumbs as needed, until mixture is moist enough to form cakes, but does not fall apart.
  3. Pat mixture into cakes, set aside on clean plate and chill.
  4. In separate bowl, break 2 large or 4 small eggs and briefly whisk.
  5. Pour 1 1/2 cups crumbs into a mixing bowl, add salt and stir to mix.
  6. Dip crab cakes first into the eggs, then roll in crumb mixture to coat and cover. Set on a clean surface.
  7. Pour oil into a frying pan or wok set over medium-high heat, 1 inch deep. Heat for 1 min or longer. Test heat by dropping a few crumbs in: if they sizzle immediately, oil is ready.
  8. Carefully place crab cakes in hot oil. Reduce heat slightly to prevent overheating and splattering. Fry crab cakes 1 to 2 mins per side, or until golden brown.
  9. Serve with a dollop of mayonaise.
