In a small bowl mix together the egg, the dynamite sauce and the chives. Pour it over the crab meat and add in the bread crumbs. Gently fold in everything. Do not break up the crab.

Form into two crab cakes.

Set your oven to Broil.

On each fillet of fish, place a crab cake on top. Place in the oven to cook for 8-10 minutes. The tops of the crab cakes will be browned.

While the fish is in the Oven, heat a small skillet on the stove and add the butter.

Once the butter is melted, add all the vegetables and onion and peppers. Season with salt. Pour in the stock, along with the thyme sprigs and let it cook down. It should take about 3-5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add in the chopped chives.

To serve, place the fillet with the crab cake on your plate, drizzle some of your Dynamite Sauce over it and add your vegetables. Enjoy!
