Directions:
Crab cakes: Gently mix together the crab meat, scallions, lime juice, cilantro, hot sauce, Worcestershire, coconut milk, bread crumbs, salt and pepper until the ingredients hold their shape. Chill for at least 1 hour (can be refrigerated for a day). Take the chilled mixture and form it into 2 oz. cakes; melt the butter and set aside to cool. Finely grate the potatoes and rinse them very well, until the water runs clear. Drain and dry. Pour the melted butter into the potatoes and mix. Dredge the cakes with the potatoes until well coated. Drain and serve with pea sauce.

Sweet pea sauce: Put everything except the peas into a stock pot. Slowly simmer for about 30-40 minutes. Strain. Put mixture in a blender. Add 1 cup of the peas, puree until smooth. Strain. Add remaining whole peas. Serve with the crab cakes.
