    • 1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
    • 2 canned chipotle chile peppers, finely chopped
    • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    Corn Crab Cakes:
    • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
    • 7 medium green onions, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
    • 4 teaspoons prepared mustard
    • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
    • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
    • 6 eggs, beaten
    • 1 1/3 cups fine dry bread crumbs
    • 4 6 ounce can crabmeat, drained, flaked, and cartilage removed
    • 1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs
    • 1/3 cup cornmeal
    • 1/3 cup cooking oil
    • Lemon wedges (optional)
    For chipotle mayonnaise, stir together mayonnaise or salad dressing, chipotle chile peppers, and garlic. Cover and refrigerate up to 1 week until needed.
    In a saucepan cook corn, green onions, mustard, coriander, and red pepper in butter or margarine about 5 minutes until corn is tender. Place in a mixing bowl, and add eggs, the 1-1/3 cups bread crumbs, and crab meat.
    Shape into eight 1/2-inch-thick patties using about 1/3 cup crab mixture for each. In a shallow dish stir together the 1/3 cup bread crumbs and cornmeal. Coat patties with cornmeal mixture.
    In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add half of the patties. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a 300 degree F oven while frying the remaining patties. Serve warm with Chipotle Mayonnaise and, if desired, lemon wedges. Makes 8 servings (2 cakes with 2 tablespoons mayonnaise per serving).
