  • Ingredients


First of all, chop the spring onions, half the coriander (minus any very thick stalks) and the jalapeño in a mini-chopper.

Combine these with the rest of the ingredients (except the semolina and oil), season and mix well. After that, divide the mixture into 6 and form it into round patties, squeezing the mixture together firmly. Spoon the semolina on to a plate and coat the crab cakes on all sides.

For the mayonnaise, whiz the ingredients together in a mini-chopper and empty it into a dish. To cook the crab cakes, heat the oil in a medium frying-pan till very hot and shimmering, then cook them for about 2 minutes on each side.

Serve with the remaining coriander to garnish and a good helping of mayonnaise.
