Crabcake Sauce

Crabcake SauceOn of the spoils of having crabs at my parents' house is the batches of frozen crab meat we pick after everyone is full. My most favorite thing to make with the meat are crabcakes.  I can eat them on a sandwich, between saltine crackers or just plain.  Lately, the most enjoyable way has been with this sauce that is my mom's recipe.  Originally it was a recipe to dip steamed artichoke leaves into, but we decided it shines as a sauce for crabcakes. 
Crabcake Sauce

3 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

few pinches cayenne pepper, to taste

pinch sugar
pinch salt

lemon zest, to taste

Whisk all ingredients together in a glass or ceramic bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Chill for at least one hour.

I made this sauce to accompany a store-bought crab cake this past weekend. It was so easy to make and it tasted wonderful. My husband loved it as well. Thanks for posting this recipe!
