Maryland Crab Cakes II

Rating: 4.31 stars
412

Maryland is famous for its crab cakes! After you've tried this recipe, you'll know why.

Air Fryer Crab Cakes

Air frying crab cakes means less mess and less cleanup, but at no sacrifice to taste. They're flavorful, crisp, and lighter than if cooked with oil in a skillet. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, aioli, or tartar sauce, as well as fresh lemon wedges.

These are the fastest, easiest crab cakes I have ever made and some of the best I have ever eaten! Serve with coarse mustard on the plate or your favorite mustard sauce.

Baked Maryland Lump Crab Cakes

Rating: 4.45 stars

Having lived by the Chesapeake Bay on Kent Island, MD nearly my whole life, I was challenged to develop this authentic Maryland style crab cake about a year ago. Many people claim to have the true Maryland crab cake, but this one uses all lump meat with almost no filler added and tastes incredible! Let me know what you think!

Cajun Crab Cakes (No Breadcrumbs)

Rating: 4.68 stars
38

Two of the most crucial ingredients used in New Orleans cooking are Cajun spice and local seafood! Crab has always been my favorite type of shellfish, but I have never really cared much for crab cakes. The overpowering presence of seasoned breadcrumbs used in most recipes interferes with the sweet and delicate flavors of the fresh lump crabmeat. After years of experimenting with many of New Orleans' most famous crab cake recipes, I have created a flavorful, mouth-watering, delicious piece of work! The key is to use a small amount of crumbled crackers instead of breadcrumbs. I hope you enjoy!

True Maryland Crab Cakes

This Crab Cake recipe is the true Crab Cake with no fillers and no heavy spices, all crab meat. This recipe has been in my family for generations.

Asian Crab Cake Salad

Rating: 4.6 stars
5

Crab cakes with an Asian twist. Delicious served on arugula or your favorite greens. Warm cakes will wilt greens. Drizzle with sauce and a pinch of salt. Sprinkle with sesame seeds for garnish. Another option would be to make these as bite-size cakes and serve as an appetizer.

Chef John's Remoulade Sauce

Rating: 4.43 stars
28

To make this simple remoulade sauce, combine mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, fresh dill, pickles, minced garlic, capers, lemon juice, and a dash of cayenne. This version has some body to it. It's easy and so much better than store-bought versions. Try it with crab cakes or pretty much any grilled, broiled, or pan-seared fish.

Paleo Maryland Crab Cakes

Feel free to get creative! Add celery, jalapenos, or other ingredients. You can also use chopped shrimp in this recipe for shrimp cakes.
