Hot Sauce to taste

1 Egg

In a large bowl, mix all the above ingredients together well.  Form into patties and then coat with an additional ½ cup Panko Bread crumbs. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil in a frying pan over medium high heat.  Fry 3 – 4 minutes on each side until golden brown.

Lemon Dill Sauce:

½ cup Plain Yogurt

½ cup Mayonnaise

1 bunch finely chopped Dill

Hot Sauce to taste

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients above well.  Make ahead of time and refrigerate for at least an hour for the flavors to enhance.

Shallots very finely chopped

Juice of 1 lemon

½ cup Olive Oil

Vinegar

1TSP Whole Grain Mustard

Salt & Pepper to taste

In a bowl, mix lemon juice with the mustard.  While whisking quickly, lightly drizzle in olive oil to emulsify the dressing.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Toss with the Arugula.

To plate:  Place Crab Cake on plate, drizzle on lemon dill sauce.  Place the salad creatively on the plate and serve immediately.

    It was sad to see Jordan sent home from Master Chef. As an avid viewer of the show it did not seem the right choice that he was the one sent home. Way to much drama with some of the chefs from my viewpoint. However it is great to see this has not hindered his drive to follow his dream of becoming a chef.
