Maple salmon and crabcakes (seafood fest)
<p />Tonight I did salmon with a maple butter glaze to try and mimic Nature Boy's from Waldorf (which unfortunately I didn't get to go to). Just rubbed the salmon with Old-bay and fresh dill, put on the egg for about 12 minutes a side at 350 and then brushed with maple syrup with butter melted into it and grilled for another 2 minutes. That was the star of the platter.
The crab cake was the only one that held together even a little bit. I did those like on the old-bay can (2 teaspoons old bay, 2 tablespoons mayo, bread crumbs, 1 egg, and a pound of crab). Put them on a grill wok with holes in it for 15 minutes with a flip in the middle of that. The problem was that they fell apart when flipping. Tasted good though.
The ravioli was snow crab ravioli with dill from a grocery store up here called Trader Joe's. If you have one near you, I highly recommend it.
