  • Summary

    Spending much of our childhood and young adult life in and around Maryland, we like to think we know a little when it comes to a great crab cake. We’ve enjoyed countless crab cakes and have come to the realization that our favorite is this one — it’s simple with few ingredients, little filler and tastes of sweet crab. When we’re out at our favorite restaurants, we usually get three options for how the crab cake is cooked: fried, pan-seared and broiled. We hardly ever choose fried, but often go for pan-seared or broiled. We have shared our method for both options below.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound jumbo lump or backfin lump crabmeat, fresh or pasteurized
    • 20 saltine crackers, crushed into crumbs (65 grams or just less than 1 cup of crumbs)
    • 1 tablespoon minced chives or parsley, optional
    • 1/4 cup (55 grams or 2 ounces) mayonnaise, try our homemade mayonnaise recipe
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 1/4 cup (60 ml) canola oil, or neutral flavored oil
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 6 bread rolls
    • Lettuce
    • Tomato
    • Tarter sauce
    • Cocktail sauce
    • Lemon wedges
    • Old Bay seafood seasoning
