There is nothing more that says Maryland than Crab cakes. This is the traditional way to prepare Maryland crab cakes.


  • Combine all ingredients except for the fine cracker crumbs and butter in a large bowl.
  • Gently mix well, being careful not to break up the lumps.
  • Form for equal sized crab cakes and place them in the cracker meal to form a crust.
  • Place crab cakes on a platter, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Melt the butter in a saute pan and saute the crab cakes until golden brown on both sides.
