ISO Sauce for Crab Cakes

I'm looking for a sauce to serve with crab cakes. We had crab cakes for dinner tonight and a really tasty and interesting sauce was missing to finish off the dish.

Any suggestions?

I like a remoulade or a chipotle mayo.

What about melted butter, lemon, and tarragon or dill? Or a mustard dill sauce?

I would probably make a couple of different sauces--that way, you can try them and decide which one you like best for next time.

We like a well made pico de gallo sauce on the side.

I like to eat mine with a baked potato (dressed with butter & sour cream). I have a bit of each in every bite. Tastes great.

How about some homemade tartar sauce.We love it with any fried fish.Way better than anything jarred.

1/2 cup mayo
1 tbs sweet pickle relish with some juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice.
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
Salt and pepper and a littlle paprika
Stir and add more pickle juice if needed to thin.

You can also play with some fresh herbs to tweek it for the crab cakes. Dill or tarragon work nice.

This is my favorite:
Chardonnay Cream Sauce
1 3/4 cups Chardonnay or other dry white wine
1/3 cup chopped shallots
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper
Boil wine with garlic and shallots in heavy saucepan until mixture is reduced to cup (about 15 minutes). Add cream and continue to cook until liquid is reduced to sauce consistency (about 10 minutes). Whisk in softened butter and season with salt and pepper.

This is SUPPOSEDLY Joe Stone Crabs recipe that the Miami Herald printed many years ago.

1 cup mayo (we just use Kraft regular)
2 tsp Worchestershire sauce
1 tsp regular A-1 sauce
2 tbsp heavy cream
2 tbsp milk
3 tbsp Coleman's dry mustard (use Coleman's, it doesn't taste right otherwise)
pinch of salt

Place dry mustard and salt in a small bowl than add cream and stir until dissolved, add other liquid ingredients (except milk), mix well, stir in mayo. If it's too thick, add the milk, you can use more or less depending on how thick you want it. Cover and chill for at least an hour so flavors can meld.

BTW, Craig's brother LOVED this on pretzels.

I like to add minced onion and capers to that tartar sauce.

I leave out the sugar and use chopped pickle instead of the pickle relish, but I'm weird and I don't like sweet with my savoury.

My favorite for crab cakes (and various other things) is Crabanero.

I will be trying this: Mustard Sauce for gravad laks. It says that it goes well with crab cakes.
