Foodie Friday

Its the weekend friends & I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate! Between my roommate’s birthday yesterday, Mother’s Day Sunday & my birthday Tuesday we’ve got lots of partying to do! This week’s Foodie Friday is dedicated to a fun & festive fiesta salad that’s both healthy & delicious…talk about a perfect combo!

Crab Cakes & Fiesta Salad

  • 1/2 lb. jumbo lump crab meat
  • 1/4 c. panko
  • 1 egg
  • cajun seasonings
  • 1/2 avocado (small cubes)
  • 1 lime
  • 1/4 shallot (minced)
  • 1 fat clove garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 bunch cilantro (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp EVOO
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 ear corn
  • 1/4 c adzuki beans (or black beans)
  • 2-4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Mixed Greens

Start by roasting the ear of corn in oven @ 450 for about 20 minutes & then go to work on the crab cakes – beat egg & add to crab meat with panko & seasonings. Mix together until completely combined & form into patties (should be enough for four large cakes). Place coconut oil in a large non-stick skillet & turn heat onto medium high. While oil heats, wisk together the dressing by adding lime juice, shallots, garlic & avocado together. Slowly add in the EVOO & salt/pepper to taste. Set dressing aside and place crab cakes in oil to cook…flipping after a few minutes per side. Once crab cakes are cooked, allow to sit on cooling rack or plate with a paper towel to get ride of any excess oil & cool slightly. While the cakes cool, assemble the salad -toss the greens & dressing together, then top with corn and beans and toss again. Add the crab cakes to the top, sprinkle the whole thing with cilantro & you’re good to go!

Have a fabulously fun weekend friends!

Pose-A-Day: Yesterday’s Titthibasana (FireFly) is definitely a posture I need to work on but that’s why we practice, right?!?! Keep an eye on instagram for today’s Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand) which I am particularly excited about!
