Sauvignon Blanc + Quick Crab Cakes

When shopping for the crabmeat to make this dish, check out Seafood Watch to choose the most sustainable crabmeat available to you, such as Alaskan crabmeat. This dish is quick and crowd pleasing, so be sure to have a bottle of District 7 Sauvignon blanc chilling in the fridge before you start cooking. The crunchy, crispy outside of the crab cakes paired with the citrusy Sauvignon Blanc is nothing short of divine.
