Moshulu Crabcake with Sweet Potato Hash & Caper Remoulade

1 lb. Jumbo crab will yield 2 large or three medium crabcakes.
1 lb fresh jumbo lump crab
1/2 slice brioche bread small diced
Chef Tip: Some parts of the country use cracker crumbs rather than bread to help bind. You can use bread crumbs, cracker crumbs, white bread, brioche bread, whatever you like
3 T crab mayo (see recipe below)
Chef Tip; there are many different crabmeats around especially in the summer. Make sure there aren't a lot of additives, that you're just getting crab meat. And don't be afraid to mix several types together i.e. fresh domestic jumbo mixed with pasteurized claw meat is a great combo and can cut back price per pound.

Gently fold together ingredients and form into cakes by hand or in ring mold. Or form into smaller cakes for quicker cooking and serve two per person.
Pan sear with a bit of light oil and finish in 350 degree oven for 3 to 4 minutes.
Serve on top of sweet potato hash and caper remoulade. (recipes below)
Chef Tip; You can also pair the crabcakes with French Fries, cole slaw or your favorite version of a breakfast style hash
