1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
1 T. olive oil
1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
1 large egg, beaten

1/4 tsp. pepper
dash of
Worcestershire sauce
2 T. butter
 
Saute green onion and bell pepper in hot oil in a large nonstick skillet 8 min. or until tender. (I must say I forgot to do this I just added it all together & it was great if you want to omit this step)
Stir everything together. I also added a piece of bread broken into little bits but this was not in the recipe.
Now the recipe said to shape mixture into patties - abt one heaping tablespoonful each and place on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet-cover and chill from 2 to 8 hours. Then melt butter and cook the patties in it.
This is what I did:
I rolled abt a tablespoonful of the mixture in cornmeal and fried them in olive oil until browned on both sides; then drained them on paper towel (no waiting time really needed).
Makes 24 crabcakes.
 
And this is the sauce recipe included called Creamy Caper Dill Sauce and it is every bit worth buying the capers and fresh dill for--it is also absolutely delicious:

2 tsp. chopped fresh dill
1 tsp. dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. salt

2 tb Butter
1 tb Flour
3/4 c Chicken stock
1/4 c Light cream

bag vigorously until each piece is thoroughly coated.

there will be plenty of it.
Then lay them side by side on waxed paper and place them near the
stove so that you can get to them easily when you start frying. Preheat oven to warm and in it place a large baking dish lined with
paper toweling.

begin frying chicken.
Put in the thigh and legs first and cover the pan at once.

occasionally to check the process, and when deep brown turn - with a
wooden spoon, so you don't pierce the skin.
Cover and brown the other side.
As each piece is cooked, remove it, place it in the warm oven, and
put an uncooked piece in its place.
Cook all of the chicken in the same way.
Just remember that the white meat will take a little less time to
cook than the dark pieces.

1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced

Mix orange juice concentrate, soy sauce, garlic and ginger in a
microwave safe casserole.  Place salmon on mixture, flesh side down, at least one hour before cooking (I've done this as early as the  night before and that is wonderful too, although the flavoring of  the fish is much stronger).  Cover with plastic wrap and let rest.  Cook on high in microwave for 10 minutes.  The sauce will reduce down to a lovely glaze -- this is wonderful with rice and a nice green salad.  I use more garlic and ginger than called for, and also use the pre-minced types that come in jars which makes this even easier
