First Monday Favorites - August 2017 -8

It's time for First Monday Favorites.

Here's where you share what one recipe you made last month that surprised, delighted and amazed you and that you'll be making again and again.  Not the one with the most views either, but your own personal favorites.
I was missing in action most of July. Between finishing off my cookbook, editing it, and proofing it, and then a long road trip for a family funeral,  which took up half the month, well let me just say, I'm finally back in the kitchen again and there will be some new recipes and posts next month. 

Danish Remoulade Sauce on Crab Cake
In the meantime, here's my favorite from July.   I entered a Crab Cake Cookoff, and won the People's Choice award, woohoo!!!  But it's not the crab cake recipe I'm sharing, I actually haven't posted it yet.  But it's the sauce I made to serve with the crab cakes that I'm sharing.  Cause I'm so making this again and again and again.  In fact I made a special trip to the store to get another head of cabbage so I could.   This is the kind of sauce Danes dream of.   Really, they do.  Danish Remoulade Sauce.
Which goes so good on not only crab cakes, but also on various open face sandwiches and it will also be in my cookbook, Hygge - Danish Food and Recipes, which is coming out in the next couple of weeks.     But I'll tell you more about that in a separate post.
Crab Cake Cookoff First Prize
But the sauce I made for the crab cakes was so good, and people were very insistent that I give them the recipe, I had to use that as my favorite from July.  I made 5 cups of it, and there was NONE left at the end.  Hello, five cups of sauce for about 80 or so mini crab cakes?  Yup, it was gone.  
Now it's your turn. 
What one recipe did you make last month that amazed, delighted and totally blew you away with how delicious it was?

  1. Sid, this sauce sounds so friggin' good...I think I could pretty much eat on anything and everything!!!

  2. I can't wait to try this sauce! I make crab and fish cakes quite often!
