"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons drained bottled horseradish
1 pound lump crabmeat, picked free of shell
1 cup dry bread crumbs
3 scallions, including green tops, chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Pinch cayenne
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
3 tablespoons cooking oil

In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, 1/4 cup of the mayonnaise, and the horseradish.
In a large bowl, combine the crabmeat, the remaining 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/4 cup of the bread crumbs, the scallions, parsley, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Shape the crab mixture into eight patties. Coat the patties with the remaining 3/4 cup bread crumbs and pat off the excess.
In a large nonstick frying pan, heat the oil over moderate heat. Working in batches if necessary, fry the cakes until golden brown and crisp, about 2 minutes. Turn and fry until golden brown on the other side, about 2 minutes longer. Drain on paper towels. Serve with the horseradish cream.
Yield: 4 servings
