Directions

Crab Cake:

Combine bread crumbs, egg, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and crab seasoning and mix well. Pour mixture over crabmeat and fold in, taking care not to break up the lumps. Form into six cakes, and pat until just firm, then deep fry in 350 F canola oil for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.

Remoulade:

Combine the mayo, mustard, garlic, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, Cajun seasoning, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and parsley in a small bowl. Refrigerate until needed.

Pickled Celery:

Prepare the celery by cut into your desired shape and size. Place celery in a non-reactive container. In a pot, combine the white wine vinegar, water, granulated sugar, salt, peppercorns and red pepper flakes in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the salt and sugar dissolve. Pour the brine over the celery in the container. Add the fresh dill. Stir gently. Let the brine come to room temperature before covering and transferring to the fridge. Keep it in the fridge overnight. Store for 2 weeks.

Salad:

In a large bowl, toss together all of the ingredients. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Store the salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
