For crab cakes:
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of the bread crumbs, mayonnaise, red sweet pepper, green onion, cumin, chili powder, salt, garlic and black pepper. Gently stir in crabmeat and mix well.

  • Shape mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Coat the patties with the remaining 1/4 cup bread crumbs.

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet. Cook crab cakes over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until they're golden and heated through. If necessary, reduce heat to avoid overbrowning.

  • Remove crab cakes from skillet and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with Sweet Tomato Dressing. Makes 4 servings.
