Maryland Crab Cakes — Traditional

1 pound backfin crab meat
cup cracker crumbs or bread crumbs
2 eggs
cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
teaspoon white pepper
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dry mustard

Carefully remove all cartilage from crab meat. In a bowl, mix together eggs, mayonnaise, seafood seasoning, white pepper, Worcestershire sauce and dry mustard. Add crab meat, mix evenly and gently. Add cracker crumbs evenly. Shape into 6 cakes. Deep fry in oil at 350 degrees for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown, or saute in a frying pan with a little oil for 5 minutes on each side. Crab cakes can also be broiled for a few minutes on each side until browned.

Thank you Chrystal for the recipe. Not sure what seafood seasoning is but I am sure it can be bought at the grocery store. Sounds pretty easy to me.

Mary, I have been having a craving for crab cakes. They sound just delicious.

Old Bay is one brand. They make other brands.

The best crab cakes I have ever eaten were in Baltimore, MD. Maybe Chrystal's are that recipe. All I know is that I'd make a trip back to Maryland for crab cakes whenever I could . . .
