With summer coming and steamed crabs, I wanted to share my recipe for Maryland Crab Cakes. My family and friends rave about my seafood and ask for it often. The biggest secret is you have to use jumbo lump crab meat. It is more expensive but well worth it when you sit down to eat.

Add to Grocery List

1 lb
jumbo lump crab meat
heaping tbsp of mayo
tsp mustard (reg or spicy)
skakes of worchester sauce
shakes of soy sauce (really makes a difference)
cracker meal ( i make my own, just use your food processor to grind until crackers are very fine)
old bay seasoning to taste
2 Tbsp
fresh parsley roughly chopped

How to Make Maryland Crab Cakes


  • 1Mix your mayo, egg, mustard, soy sauce,old bay seafood seasoning, parsley and worchester sauce together. I do this because you want to handle the crab meat as little as possible, so as not to break up the lumps of the crab meat
  • 2Gently pick thru your lump crab meat to remove any shells
  • 3Add your crab meat to liquid mixture and gently mix together. Add your cracker meal a little at a time. Form your crab cakes to the desired size. (1pound usually makes 4 good size crab cakes)If your going to broil your crab cakes you only need enough cracker meal to hold the crab cake together. If your going to fry them you will need more need more cracker meal.
