Maryland Style Crab Cakes



     Crab cakes are one of those things that everyone seems to have the "best" recipe. Some like them spicy, others filled with extra bread crumbs, etc., and some like them just plain with a lot of crab. Well I have had a whole variety of them and have come to the conclusion that Maryland style is certainly one of the best. A little restaurant used to be in my town that made some of the best I have ever had. The owner one evening gave me a little advise to make the perfect Maryland Style Crab Cake. Here is the result.

  • 8 oz crab meat
  • 1 1/2 tsp old bay seasoning
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbs mayo
  • 1 tbs honey mustard
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs parsley
  • Butter for saute
Sauce (optional)
  • 2 tbs mayo
  • 2 tbs honey mustard
  • 1 tsp dill
1. In a large bowl combine crab meat, old bay, onion powder, mayo, mustard, bread crumbs, egg, and parsley. Mix well with hands and form into about 3 inch wide patties.
2. In a large saute pan melt butter and brown crab patties on each side until golden and crisp. Roughly about 3 minutes each side.
3. Mix mayo, mustard, and dill and drizzle over top upon serving.
You will definitely fall in love with these flavor packed crab cakes. Trust me, once you make them for the first time you will continue to make them this quick and easy way.
