    Maryland Crab Cakes
    Recipe courtesy of BunglingBill

    Ingredients:

    1 pound Maryland crab meat
    1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
    1 large egg
    1/3 cup mayonnaise
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    Margarine, butter or oil for frying


    Remove all cartilage from crabmeat

    In a bowl, mix bread crumbs, eggs, mayonnaise and seasonings.

    Add crab meat and mix gently but thoroughly. If mixture is too dry, add a little more mayonnaise. Shape into 6 cakes.

    Cook cakes in a frying pan, in just enough fat to prevent sticking, until they are browned (about 5 minutes on each side).

    *Note: If desired, crab cakes may be deep fried at 350 degrees for 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned.

    You might want to try this:

    www.recipes.epicurean.com/recipe/11588/maryland-crab-cakes.

    They use "Old Bay", a Maryland tradition and you can broil if you like. I try not to introduce any flavores ie. margarine to the actual product. Try to use a neutral oil.

    Good Luck. Let us know how they turned out.

    It was love at first sight between me and crabs. I include them in many of my dishes. That one sounds delicious!

    ocdreamer(from this site) gave me the simpilest recipe ever, very little filler(5 crushed saltines). My Mom always requests them for her birthday, Christmas, my boyfriend LOVES them. I have the recipe at home. I'll post it tomorrow. You may be able to search it although it's been quite awhile.

    try foodtv.com, Emerile has a very good pan fried crabcake recipe that I have made many times...a little effort and a good long list of ingredients, but in the end they are very tasty.

    The one I use comes off the can of Phillip's blue crab meat. We like it a lot, even PP likes it.

    Here is ocdreamers great crabcake recipe:

    Crab Cakes
    1 egg beaten 1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup mayo 1/2 tsp grnd blk pepper
    1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce 1/2 tsp dry mustard
    1 TBSP parsely flakes
    6 finely crumbled saltine crackers
    1Tsp Old Bay Seasoning
    1 pound crabmeat (backfin preferred)

    Pick through crab meat to remove any shell, mix igrediants lightly using hands. (I mix everthing but the crab & crumbs together first to make sure it's well blended) Make into cakes about 2 - 3 inches accross, don't make them too big, they will be harder to handle & don't compress too tightly. Now is the most important step, put the uncooked plastic wrapped cakes on a plate in the fridge for several hours, the chilling will help to hold them together. Brown cakes in fry pan about 4 minutes per side. What you fry them in is your choice. One school uses butter and the other school uses crisco (I use butter flavored crisco!)
    I make mine a bit differently. I always used lump crab (as Faidley's does for their more expensive crabcakes)........and a little less mayo and the only seasoning that I put in is the Old Bay Seasoning. I feel the less seasoning the better so that the crab flavor shines through. Also, in order to get the most delectable crabcake, one should always use fresh crab..........the pasturized crab just does not taste as good. When I make my crabcakes, I put them together first thing in morning and place on tray or cookie sheet and cover with saran and let them chill all dayin the refrigerator. That way they will not fall apart even though there is barely no filler in them

    I do mine by "feel"....crab meat, Old Bay or Paul Prudhomme's "Seafood Magic", just enough mayo / crumbs to bind. the mixture should still feel very "fluid". Form rough patties, dust lightly with a little flour and drop into hot skillet with a little butter and oil. When they're firmed up a little, but not done, remove to a cookie sheet or cakepan in a 300 degree oven to finish off.

    My recipe is almost too simple. Crab meat, panko bread crumbs, a few eggs, and a bit of Old Bay...what more is needed?

    There used to be a place in Richmond named the Frog and the Redneck (two owners, one French and the other from the South) that had the BEST crabcakes on the planet. Almost 95% crab and served w/ a wonderful sauce. Gone now since Louis Palidin passed but...OH the memories.

    Sounds very bland




    LOL A crabcake is supposed to taste like crab! Nice fresh crab and lumpmeat at that. I cannot imagine wanting to hide the true taste of crab with lots of seasoning!

    Mine are like the above recipe by BB, except per pound of crabmeat, one handfull of (probably 1 cup) of freshly ground baguette bread. I then make the "cakes" in a 2 ounce souffle cup and roll them in panko before frying.

    No Old Bay. I agree that the crab should shine as the main flavor!

    This is a good recipe, a little minced green onion would help it even more.

    Trader Joe's has a good 1 lb can crab meat in their refrigerated section.
    Only about 7 or 8 dollars.

    a few things I learned yesterday:

    1) the deviled crab recipe in the sterns book "two for the road" is a pretty good recipe

    2) canned crab is better suited for deviled crab then it is for crab cakes

    3) tabasco habanero sauce is very hot

    Saw a pretty good recipe for crab cakes on the recent PBS documentary about Farmers Markets. I think the market, which prepares hot food too, was in Georgia. I clicked on the VCR when I saw the show come on (yes I live in the stone age) so's I've got it on tape somewheres. The crab cakes were huge and they dropped them into the deep fryer to cook.
