Chef John's Crab Cakes
These are what crab cakes are supposed to be like. They are basically a fried lump of crabmeat, held together with a minimum of filler. Delicious!
Chef John's Salmon
I love the combination of tarragon and Italian parsley, but I've used herbs like basil and thyme, which worked wonderfully as well. As far as the fish goes, a center-cut salmon filet is a perfect thickness for this, but other similarly shaped seafood will work.
This simple, homemade guacamole dip is always the first to get eaten at our barbecues. It's perfect to serve with tortilla chips or as a topping for tacos. To prevent browning, leave an avocado seed in the guacamole until ready to serve.

Basil Pesto Bread
At a recent party our friends went wild over this. A simple pesto is spread on Italian bread and layered with roma tomatoes and cheese. It takes a little time, but it is worth it. I freeze the basil in ice cube trays, then put the cubes in freezer bags. You can easily take out and thaw what you need. Enjoy!
