½ cup plant-based mayo
1½ tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 teaspoon agave syrup, amber

  • For the jalapeño peppers, first remove Good Catch® Plant-Based Crab Cakes from freezer and allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Wearing food handling gloves, slice each jalapeño pepper in half and carefully scoop out the seeds and seed bed, discard.
  • Brush a little extra-virgin olive oil all over and the inside the jalapeño peppers and season the inside with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
  • Take each thawed Good Catch® Plant-Based Crab Cakes and place in one of the jalapeño pepper halves. Re-form so the mixture is spread uniformly.
  • Place the stuffed jalapeño peppers on a parchment-lined sheet pan and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Add the plant-based cheddar cheese, about 2 teaspoons each, and bake for another 10 minutes or until the plant-based cheese begins to melt.
  • Serve 4 halves per portion with the cilantro sour cream.
