CRAB CAKES WITH LIME SAUCE IN MINUTES

This recipe goes together in about 15 minutes. Cooking time is 8 to 10 minutes.

1 medium lime
1 cup mayonnaise
1 envelope dry Italian Seasoning Mix
2 tbsps Dijon Mustard
2 cans (6-oz each) crabmeat, drained and flaked
25 Ritz-style crackers, finel crushed, divided
2 tbsps chopped green onion
1/4 cup sour cream

Grate the lime peel and squeeze juice from the lime. Mix half the juice, half the mayonnaise, the salad dressing mix, and the mustard in a medium bowl. Stir until well blended. Add the crabmeat, half the cracker crumbs, and the onion. Mix together lightly. Shape into 16 patties, about 1/2-inch thick. Coat the patties with the remaining cracker crumbs. Spray a large skillet with nonstick vegetable oil spray. Cook patties, in batches, over medium heat about 2 minutes or until browned on each side and heated through. Meanwhile, mix remaining mayonnaise, lime juice, lime peel, and sour cream together in a small bowl. Mix to blend together well. Serve crab cakes with a dollop of the sour cream sauce over the top.
