Maryland Crab Cakes II Recipe
Maryland is famous for its crab cakes! After you've tried this recipe, you'll know why.
Delicious crab cakes!
Growing up near the Chesapeake Bay you learn that crabs are as valuable as gold. My mom made crab cakes every Friday in the summer months, but I like my recipe just a tad better. Don't tell mom.
These crispy fried crab cakes are packed with sweet tender crabmeat. Enjoy with lemon wedges or tartar sauce.
I am from Maryland, so we eat alot of crabcakes. I have tried many crabcake recipes, and this one is probably the best. I followed the recipe exactly, but I wanted to add Old Bay Seasoning, which I forgot *gasp*. Don't over mix the crab meat. It should stay lumpy!
I'm from The Baltimore & Annapolis area & know seafood.- The REAL Md. crab cakes are the lump crab meat, Old Bay to taste & enough Real Kraft Mayonnaise to hold them together. Anything else is considered, "filler" !
Wonderful. I did changes. Added leaf onion, (green onion leafs only), doubled recipe, added chili pepper spice, left out for half hour, too warm up, (blends flavors more better), topped off with homemade cranberry topinade, also left out to warm up so it coats better. Fantabulistic. All involved, loved it. Served with white rice. Will definitely make sure it's around for a long time.
I finally can make the type of crab cakes I love so much. Having been spoiled with Maryland style crab cakes when I lived in PA, I have ordered these several times in NY and NJ and rarely have crab cakes in this style. As from other reviewers, I made some changes. I used 1 lb of fresh crab meat which would result in about 5 dinner size cakes. I used Old Bay instead of Hot Sauce. I used cornflake crumbs instead of bread crumbs. I let sit in fridge for about 30-45 minutes to firm. I put it on rack 2nd from top in broiler. They came out fabulous. I believe I put 2 T of Mayo and at some point might try with homemade mayo as I have been told that it would make a great difference. I served with a Rémoulade sauce bought in seafood department.
