Sweet Heat Barbecue Crab Cakes

Yield: 8 Servings

2 lbs jumbo lump crab meat
2 lbs back fin crab meat
4 slices raw apple smoked bacon, julienne
2 shallots, chopped fine
4 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1 red bell pepper, small diced
1 green bell pepper, small diced
½ bunch parsley, chopped fine
6 green onions, chopped
Zest and juice of 2 lemons
3 cups mayonnaise
1 cup whole grain mustard
3 cups panko bread crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons Golden Flake Sweet Heat Barbecue Spice

1. Pick through crab meat to insure there are no pieces of shell.
2. In a sauté pan, render the bacon until it starts to crisp-up. Add shallots, garlic, and bell
peppers. Cook until tender.
3. Remove from heat and cool. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Be careful not to
break up the lump crab meat too much. When the mixture holds together, it is ready. Taste and season as needed.
4. Portion the cakes by filling a circle cutter with the mixture. Gently coat the exposed sides
with panko bread crumbs. Pop the cake out of the cutter onto a parchment lined sheet pan.
Wrap and refrigerate.
5. Sear the crab cakes to order in olive oil, finish in the oven.

Sweet Heat Barbecue Potato Soup

Yield: 8 Servings

4 thick-cut bacon slices
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 teaspoons salt
9 (about 3 lbs) russet potatoes, peeled and
2 cups whole or low-fat milk
1 teaspoon Golden Flake Sweet Heat Barbecue Spice
Finely chopped chives (optional)

1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the bacon in the pan, reduce heat to medium, and cook until browned and crisp, about 6 minutes. Transfer to paper towel lined plate. Add the onion, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the pan and cook
until the onion is soft and the garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Crumble the bacon back into the skillet, turn off the heat, and set aside.
2. Bring the potatoes to a boil in a large pot with 4 cups of water and 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until tender and just starting to break apart, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat. Using a potato masher or wooden spoon, smash the potatoes in the pot with the water until they're mostly broken up (you want to keep some chunky potato bits).
3. Heat the milk in a small saucepan or microwave until hot, add to the potatoes. Stir in the bacon and onion mixture, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and the Golden Flake Sweet Heat Barbecue Spice. Return to the stove, and continue to simmer until the soup
is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with chives, if using. Serve hot.
