Please jonmark98, don't be afraid to try this recipe. I left home right after high school, knowing only what I learned in home ec class. I have experimented & made many mistakes, but learn alot from watching cooking shows & online. I have never mastered poaching eggs, but I got something that works in the microwave.....also try breaking the egg into a glass custard cup & putting in a skillet filled half way with simmering water. There is a link to the sauce recipe right in the one for the crab cakes, which says to cook the cakes for 4 minutes a side.....I always read a recipe a couple of times before starting & still don't always interpret it right.....still, it's so very rewarding when you make something & enjoy it.....even more so when you share it with someone else & they enjoy it too.....don't give up.
this is a ridiculuous 'recipe' for someone who doesn't cook. how to poach an egg? how do you make the Caribbean Hollandaise sauce? how hot do you cook the crab meat? these are the kind of recipes that discourage me from cooking.
I gave it one star, not because I wouldn't make it again, but because I never could make it in the first place...have fun with this one you professionally trained chefs!
Made this for my Caribbean obsessed mother for Mother's Day brunch last year! She and everyone else loved it. It was so good that even my dogs could not resist a taste- Stinkers! One word to the wise though, set aside plenty of time- this is a putsy meal!
