Puree the sour cream, scallions, cilantro and jalapeño with the lime juice. Add the shredded cabbage and stir to combine. Refrigerate covered and chill while you prepare the cakes

For the Cakes, mash:

Fry the cakes in olive or coconut oil until heated through, about 4 minutes per side.
Serve the cakes with the slaw.
