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.
