Avocado Blue Crab Cakes with Mango Beurre Blanc
A sumptuous and impressive appetizer will melt in your mouth to melt your heart away. The creamy avocado and delicious blue crab married perfectly with the rich buttery sauce flavored with delicious, sweet mango and the tangy fresh orange juice. Both the sauce and the crab cake complement each other very well.
The golden looking blue crab cakes are crispy on the outside filled generously with blue crab meat and creamy avocado inside. These plump crab cakes are gorgeously sitting on a bed of fresh greens soaking in a pool of sweet and delicate mango beurre blanc.
Beurre blanc is a Classic French buttery sauce meaning "white butter". It is a hot emulsified butter sauce made with a reduction of vinegar and/or white wine and shallots into which cold butter is blended off the heat to prevent separation. I have replaced the vinegar and white wine with freshly squeezed orange juice. I strongly recommend you try this combination to relish the best crab cakes ever.
