1. Mince together the onion, cilantro, jalapeño
and bell pepper. (If using a food processor,
take care not to purée mixture.)
2. In a bowl, combine mixture with crab meat, egg, mayonnaise,
ginger, curry powder,
cumin and salt. Add lemon juice and mix until evenly blended. Add one cup of the bread
crumbs, and mix again until well blended.
3. Form mixture into two evenly sized balls, squeezing
firmly, then press into burger shapes;
if any bits come off, mold them back on. Rub cakes on both sides with remaining bread crumbs.
4. Cover surface of a 10-inch skillet with oil; turn heat
to medium-high and, a minute later,
gently slide crab cakes into pan. Lower heat to medium, and cook until golden brown.
Carefully flip them over and brown the other side; total cooking time will be about 10 minutes.
Serve with an India pale ale. Yield: 2 large or 4 small servings.
