Week 4: Pan Frying

  • Crab Cakes
  • Shrimp Cakes
  • Cheesy Orzo
  • Cucumber Salad

Crab and shrimp cakes used the same recipe, just substituted crab or shrimp. This is the recipe I started with. I used onion instead of shallot for the shrimp cakes, plus more garlic.

The orzo recipe started with this, but I heavily modified it.

Cucumber salad was just sliced cucumber, onion, green bell pepper, vinegar and sugar. It was much needed to cut through the heaviness of everything else.

As a side note, never put a gallon sized bowl of this in the refrigerator with just plastic wrap as a lid. If you must do it, do not put it on top of someones case of beer. As the contents of the beer box shift, the cucumber salad spills everywhere.
