Crab cake:

Orange Hollandaise


  1. In a large bowl, fold all ingredients together being careful not to break up the crab. Mold mixture into 4 (4-inch) ring molds (I use a donut cutter with the center whole cutter removed). Coat a large saute pan, over medium-high heat and add the crab cakes. Cook until the exterior is browned and cake is warmed through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter.

Orange Hollandaise:

  1. Cook egg yolks and orange juice over a double boiler until yolks thicken enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and whisk in butter until the sauce thickens to a consistency similar to mayonnaise. Thin the sauce a bit with the water. Add cilantro and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. Top the crab cakes with avocado. Garnish with micro cilantro salad and red chili oil and serve with Citrus Cilantro Hollandaise.
