Crawfish Cakes with Honey Jalapeno Sauce

Crawfish cakes

12oz package of Louisiana crawfish tails

½ cup olive oil, divided

½ cup minced onion

4 green onions, chopped

½ cup minced celery

½ cup minced red bell pepper

½ cup minced yellow bell pepper

2 teaspoons minced garlic

¼ cup all purpose flour

¾ cup heavy whipping cream

2 cups Italian bread crumbs, divided

¼ cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

2 teaspoons Commander’s Palace Creole Seafood seasoning

1 teaspoon horseradish/mustard combo (Walmart)

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

4 shakes Cayenne pepper

Honey/Jalapeno Sauce

Zest and juice of one lemon

6 tablespoons honey

5 tablespoons melted butter

1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

6 cloves roasted garlic

*1 roasted Jalapeno, seeded

Wrap the garlic cloves unpeeled and jalapeno in aluminum foil. Place in toaster oven on grill setting and cook for 18 minutes at 425 degrees, or use regular oven.  After 18 minutes remove and squeeze garlic cloves from their peelings. Place garlic and jalapeno in blender with all ingredients and blend until smooth.

**note: start with 1/3 to ½ of jalapeno pepper. The peppers can be very hot or very mild and it is better to start off with less and taste. If you want it hotter, add more of the pepper.

Commander’s Palace Creole Seafood Seasoning

1/3 cup salt

¼ cup granulated or powdered garlic

¼ cup freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons thyme

2 tablespoons oregano

1/3 cup paprika

3 tablespoons granulated or powdered onion

2 tablespoons cayenne pepper (which I leave out)

Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Pour into glass jar and seal airtight.  Keeps indefinitely.

*note: I leave out the Cayenne pepper as I like to add separately per dish.
