Welsh Crab Cakes

Ingredients

  • 8 Maris Piper potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large cooked Brown Crab
  • 2 handfuls mature cheddar cheese
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • handful fresh chives, finely chopped
  • ½ lemon, zest only
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • flour, for dusting

Method

  1. Fill a large pan with salted water and bring to the boil. Add the potatoes and cook until soft. Drain and mash.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cooked crab meat, mashed potatoes, cheese, egg, spring onion, chives and lemon zest. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add the sweet chilli sauce and stir through.
  3. Dust your hands and a work surface with flour. Use your hands to pat the mixture into little circular cakes.
  4. Fry the cakes in the butter until golden-brown on each side. This should take about 2-3 minutes on each side.
  5. Serve immediately with a side salad.
