Florida Seafood Recipe

Spicy Seafood Cakes

2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 tablespoon garlic
2 cups shrimp, peeled and chopped
2 cups scallops, chopped
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
2 tablespoons fresh tarragon
2 tablespoons fresh basil
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
dash salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  fresh bread crumbs
  lemon slices, optional
Add butter to a large pan and sauté diced peppers and onions until soft, approximately 2 minutes. Add garlic and chopped seafood; sauté until almost done. Remove from heat, transfer mixture to bowl and cool completely. Once cool, add next 9 ingredients and stir until combined. Add fresh bread crumbs and form into cakes that are 1 inch thick. Preheat a sauté pan over medium-high heat with enough olive oil to cover bottom of pan. Cook cakes on both sides until golden brown. Remove from pan and place on a cookie sheet. Finish cakes in 350-degree F oven for approximately 10 to 12 minutes. Serve hot with fresh lemon slices.

10-12 large cakes, or 18-20 small appetizer cakes

Look for "Fresh from Florida" ingredients at your grocery store.
