  1. I was after a sauce or aioli for crab cakes - something delicious and compatible, and something that looked good to garnish the plate. No two ways about it... this was EXACTLY what I had in mind.
  2. Good stuff. It went great with fried catfish cakes.
  3. Just tried this sauce with some sauteed chicken breasts and it worked out very well. Used whole grain dijon as that was all we had.
  4. This was phenomenal with crab cakes. I will use this again and again and I imagine it would be delicious with shrimp and other types of seafood. Thanks for sharing!
  5. This was really good, and what I was looking for. I whipped up the sauce and then did as another reviewer and put it over steamed broccoli. I also added shredded cheese on top and baked it at 350F for 20 minutes. It was sooo good and such an easy way to add some extra - Read more ...
  6. We wanted a new taste to go with broccoli and decided to give this a try. I didn't have Dijon on hand so used plain mustard instead. Followed the recipe except as above and it was great! Just enough kick to liven up the broccoli.
  7. This is a quick and easy sauce which pairs nicely with Maryland Crab cakes. We tried it last night when my wife was going to adamantly serve Crab cakes plain and she later admitted this added just to right touch.
  8. I make this type of sauce whenever I make salmon....only I add more mustard and some fresh dill...Try it it's delicious.
  9. Nice. Used this with the crab cakes I made for the first time! Yummy. I added a bit of horseradish to give it a bit of zing.
