    1      cup           cornbread crumbs

    2                    garlic cloves -- crushed
    1      tablespoon    olive oil
      1/2  pound         crabmeat
      1/4  pound         shrimp

    1      tablespoon    lime juice
    2      dashes        cayenne pepper
    3      tablespoons   butter -- clarified
 
 Cut onion into 1/2 chunks; saute in 10 frying pan in hot olive oil until
 soft, about 4 minutes.  Cut peppers into 1/2 chunks; add peppers and garlic,
 then continue cooking until peppers are almost tender. Meanwhile, peel shrimp.
 Coarsely chop shrimp, scallops and flounder. Remove onion/pepper mixture from
 heat and add seafood, mayonnaise and lime juice. Stir gently to prevent
 breaking up crab. Season to taste with salt and white pepper. Shape into
 patties and coat both sides with cornbread crumbs. (May now be placed on a
 plate and refrigerated for up to an hour) When ready to serve, heat 2 tb
 clarified butter in frying pan over moderately high heat.  Saute 3 cakes at a
 time until golden on both sides, about 2 minutes. Add more butter as
 necessary.
