Real Maryland Crab Cakes
If the Maryland Flag weren’t so cool, we’d probably fly a picture of a crab cake over the statehouse. Once you’ve had your first real one made with handpicked Maryland jumbo lump crab, you’ll know why.
Total time: 15 minutes
Serves: 6 cakes
☐ 1 pound jumbo lump, handpicked Maryland crabmeat
☐ 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
Step 1: Combine breadcrumbs, egg, mayonnaise, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and crab seasoning and mix well.
Step 2: Pour mixture over crabmeat and fold in taking care not to break up the lumps.
Step 3: Form into six cakes and pat until just firm, then deep fry in 350°F corn oil 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
