  1. In a large bowl, stir together the sour cream and egg white. Stir in the corn and poblano pepper, and season with chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper. Mix in the bread crumbs and crabmeat until well blended. Shape into 10 patties about 1/2 inch thick.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the crab cakes 4 or 5 at a time until browned on both sides, about 10 minutes. Cover the pan with a lid while frying so the patties get heated through. Drain on paper towels, and serve immediately.

I amended the recipe a bit by using the whole egg instead of just the white and, I used dry bread crumb. They were surprisingly good.....

Seems like a lot of work, but had a great taste. Definately "Fry", no baking.

I was quite disappointed in this. Something didn't taste quite right, I think it may of been the cumin. I doubt I'll attempt to make this a different way. If so I'd absolutely add more corn, and...

These needed more of the spices. Once I added an extra egg and then flour just to get them to stick together, they had very little taste. Will add more of the spices next time. 2nd try will be b...

I used the whole egg and left out the sour cream. These were pretty tasty but I agree they could use more of the seasoning. If your cakes are too wet to stay together at first, stick them in the...
