Maryland Crab Cake Recipe

We love our crabbies here in MD and after having a crab feast you may just have some left over crabbies!

Well we did, soooo we picked these yummy yummy crabs...
and made crab cakes!

Now, there are lots of crab cake recipes... but this is how we make them here at PBD!

1 pound backfin blue crab meat or other lump crab meat
8 saltine crackers
1 egg beaten
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp dijon mustard
lil squeeze of fresh lemon juice
1 tsp of hot sauce (we like em hot)
1 tsp Worcestershire
1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
salt to taste (you prob don't even need it)

Crush the saltine crackers and mix with the other ingredients. Gently fold in the crab, mixing just enough to combine ingredients. You don't want to break up that yummy crabby. Shape into 5 crab cakes, and refrigerate for 1-2 hrs!

Heat about 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan. Saute until golden brown on each side. This will only take about 3-5 minutes per side.

You can thank me later! :)
