Ingredients

Crab Cake Mixture:
Hot and Sour Vinaigrette:
Hollandaise Sauce:
Mayonnaise:

Directions

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Stuff 1 tablespoon of crab mixture into each prawn. Place prawns on sheet pan with 2 ounces of water on pan. Cook for approximately 5 minutes. 

Meanwhile, bring vinaigrette to a boil. Add cucumbers until slightly wilted. Remove from pan and keep warm. Add peppers, ginger, shallot and garlic and reduce sauce slightly. Add mint and cilantro. 

Place cucumber julienne in center of plate. Add prawns in center. Top each prawn with 1 tablespoon of hollandaise. Finish by spooning vinaigrette around plate.

Crab Cake Mixture:

In saute pan, sweat onions and celery in olive oil. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix crab meat, mayonnaise, parsley, bread crumbs and onion-celery mixture. Chill.

Hot and Sour Vinaigrette:

In a small, non-reactive saucepan, mix two quarts lime juice with sugar. Cook to a light caramel color stage.

Add honey, scallion, garlic, shallot, ginger and vinegar. Reduce by half. Add lemon, orange and pineapple juices, and pepper. Bring to a boil then lower to a simmer. Reduce by 1/4. 

Strain vinaigrette and chill overnight. Before serving, stir in oils and soy sauce.

Hollandaise Sauce:

In a small saucepan, reduce orange juice to 2 ounces. Chill. 

In a double boiler, whip egg yolks and chilled orange juice until it is 3 times its volume. Add butter in a slow steady stream to form an emulsion. 

Peel and seed jalapeno. Puree with knife. Add to egg mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste. Hold warm.

Mayonnaise:

Blend egg yolk, mustard, pepper, lemon juice, and salt in food processor. Add oil in a small steady stream. Keep chilled.
