Nested Crab Cakes With Couscous

Ingredients

4 (3-ounce) frozen lump crab cakes

1/4 cup butter, divided

1 1/4 cups water

1 (5.8-ounce) package roasted garlic/olive oil couscous

2 fresh garlic cloves

2 cups tightly packed fresh spinach

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

Steps

1. Place crab cakes on microwave-safe plate; heat in microwave on DEFROST (30% power) 2 minutes or until thawed. Preheat large sauté pan on medium heat 2-3 minutes. Place 1 tablespoon butter in pan and swirl to coat; gently add crab cakes and cook 5 minutes.

2. Add 1 tablespoon butter and turn crab cakes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook 6 more minutes or internal temperature reaches 165°F. Use a meat thermometer to accurately ensure doneness.

3. Meanwhile, combine water and 1 tablespoon butter in microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on HIGH 3 minutes or until boiling. Stir in couscous mix; cover and let stand.

4. Remove crab cakes from pan and cover to keep warm. Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter to pan. Crush garlic, using garlic press, into pan. Use knife to remove garlic from bottom of press. Cook 1-2 minutes until browned. Add remaining ingredients, cover, and cook 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until spinach is hot and tender. Form nests of spinach and top with crab cakes. Fluff couscous with fork and serve.

1 tablespoon butter

2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar

2. Peel pears, remove core, and cut into bite-size pieces.

3. Preheat large sauté pan on medium 2-3 minutes. Add butter (swirl to coat), add pears, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Cover and cook 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender and browned. Can be set aside until ready to serve.

Aprons Advice

Add some sun-dried golden raisins to the pears as they cook for added sweetness.
