Crab and Crab Cakes are a family favorite! Oh, the memories of visiting the crab houses in Maryland with family, hammers in hand with bibs on all. Or on Sarah’s 4th Birthday when she requested crab and artichockes for her birthday dinner. Be careful when introducing young kids to expensive food…they might just like it!
Crab Cakes are easy to make and delicious alone or on a bun with Remoulade sauce. This family favorite will be returning soon.
Maryland Crab Cakes
1 pound jumbo lump, handpicked Maryland crabmeat (I purchased crab meat from Costco)
½ cup breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
5 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp prepared mustard
1 tbsp Old Bay Seasoning or J.O. Crab Seasoning
Combine breadcrumbs, egg, mayonnaise, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and crab seasoning and mix well.
Pour mixture over crabmeat and fold in taking care not to break up the lumps.
Form into six cakes and pat until just firm, then deep fry in 350°F corn oil 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
