In an unaired clip of his show The F Word, Chef Ramsay walks us through his rendition of this seafood staple. Gordon also gives us some incredible tips on some side dishes he would pair with crab cakes. These include an incredible sauteed asparagus and the best creamed corn recipe to have touched a single can.
What’s interesting to note is that this is the second unaired The F Word clip to surface this past week. Gordon Ramsay also participated in a Chopped-style grocery store challenge that popped up on the internet. It seems like there was an episode or two that never launched, which is why these surprise clips are appearing.
Whatever the reason may be, we’re just glad to have a new Ramsay recipe video to drool over.
Burger King is shining the spotlight on a popular seafood item over in South Korea. The fast food burger chain added two new menu items that incorporate crab cakes into their latest sandwiches.
We’re all for any place you can get fast food crab cakes on demand.
Brand Eating reports that Burger King locations in South Korea are serving a new burger called the Tong Shrimp Crab Burger. The new item boasts a fried crab cake patty that’s topped with garlic shrimp, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and an Old Bay-flavored tartar sauce.
Accompanying this new item is the Red Crab Whopper, which boasts the same exact ingredients as a Whopper with the addition of a fried crab cake and the Old Bay tartar sauce.
The two items are only available for a limited time at participating Burger King locations in South Korea. Don’t expect to see them past the summer.
If you’re an amateur cook, attempting recipes can be hard when you’re not entirely sure what to do. That’s why it’s great to have a recipe or instructional video to go at your own pace, learn the basics, and gain confidence in your cooking.
So if you’re learning a recipe on the fly from Gordon Ramsay while trying to keep up with him in the kitchen… it may not be the best thing for your confidence.
Bon Appetit, however, thought it would be a fun idea to give it a go. They brought in Shane, an amateur cook, to learn a crab cake recipe from Gordon Ramsay. The catch? Gordon would be making it while turned away from him, so Shane would have to learn verbally. He also only had 15 minutes to make the dish.
Shane got off to a slow start, struggling with breaking down the crab and extracting the meat (thank God he had some extra, pre-shelled crab off to the side). After that, Chef Ramsay then instructed him to cut up some bell peppers. That’s where everything went downhill.
“The secret of these peppers is to make sure it’s small dicing.” – Gordon Ramsay
Yea, Shane didn’t really get the idea of small dice on that one.
While trying to keep up with Chef Ramsay, Shane kept going through even more shortcuts that ended up costing him. The worst of those being that he didn’t mix the crab cakes thoroughly, so they didn’t set or form cakes in the pan, leaving him with a mess.
In the end, Gordon Ramsay served up a beautiful crab cake, while Shane served up a… crab salad?
Hey, at least Chef Ramsay liked the taste, Shane. Better luck next time.
