Crab Cakes with fennel, artichoke and broad bean salad

The combination of fennel, artichoke and broad beans accompanied with crab cakes, fresh shavings of parmesans and a zesty dressing is a winner.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Serve 4


Ingredients:


1 box Crab cakes (we love United food Co)

Cooking Oil for shallow frying


4  baby fennel bulbs (we use The Fresh Grower)
A jar of Marinated Artichokes Hearts, drained (we love Delmaine)
1 cup fresh/frozen broad beans, shelled and peeled
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped (we love Superb Herb)


For the dressing:

2 tsp Tawari Honey (we love Airborne Honey)

Juice of 1 lemon

2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Avocado Oil (we love Olivado)

Sea salt

Black Pepper


½ cup shaved parmesan cheese (we love Mainland )


Ara  Marlborough Chardonnay to serve


Method:

  1. Deep fry the crab cakes. Drain excess oil on kitchen towel. Set aside.

  2. Remove the base and cut the stalk from each fennel bulb. Halve the bulbs and remove the cores. Using a sharp knife, vegetable peeler or mandolin, shave the fennel into thin slices.

  3. Place the fennel on a serving platter, add the artichoke hearts and peeled broad beans. Sprinkle with dill.

  4. In a small bowl, mix honey and the extra virgin avocado oil to make the dressing. Taste and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  5. Pour dressing all over the salad. Toss well. Arrange cooked crab cakes and top with the shaved parmesan. A chilled Ara Chardonnay matches perfectly with this sophisticated salad. Enjoy!
