So the first Mmm Monday cook off started out as an expensive venture with crab, and exotic Japanese ingredients, not all of which I had at home. But as I cook often with an asian flare, I welcome all the new ingredients to my flavour collection. We started at Superstore doing some shopping with Rita, who always seems to help us increase our productivity...

So, I gotta admit the crab cakes were a bit of a bomb. Tell you why. Mushy. Mushy inside. And I worried as I picked the crab that it itself was a little mushy perhaps because frozen, and such small crabs. The snow crab would really have worked a lot better. Additionally, the reciple called for a fair amount of liquid, of which I even left out a good amount. I`m wondering if bread crumbs may have also produced a more desireable texture...but the flavour was really incredible. Lots of flavours that somehow complimented each other very well. The pickle, the chili spice as well as the sweet spice from the Hoops...party in my mouth. And I always enjoy a good scoop of Kewpie mayo flavoured with anything!
