    Crabcakes Maryland

    This is for Budgetwise and anyone else who loves a really good crabcake.Big Smile

    1 egg

    2 tbsp mayonnaise

    1-2tbsp Dijon mustard

    1-2 tsps Old Bay seasoning (more or less depending on your taste)

    1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

    Blend the above in a medium bowl with a fork til all is mixed.  Mix in two slices of bread, without the crusts, cut into tiny squares.

    Add to the mix one pound of backfin crab meat and blend til the mixture coats all the meat. Form into patties and refrigerate for several hours to set a bit. Fry in a mix of cooking oil and butter (or whatever you usually fry stuff like this in; I just like the flavor of butter in my crabcakes!) until crispy and brown. Makes about six good-sized crabcakes.

     

    PS--they're called crabcakes Maryland because my mother got the recipe from Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland (not directly, I think she saw her on a TV show once! LOL!)

    Yum. Thanks for the share LD and LD's Mom! I have never tasted Old Bay seasoning and really want to try it. I see it used for so many seafood dishes. I am sorry but i am not sure what backfin crab meat is. Is it something I would have to ask for at the seafood counter and crack myself? other?

    No, you don't have to crack it yourself, unless you really want to. Backfin crab meat comes in a small plastic container, usually, or sometimes a sealed tin depending on where it's from; it's packed by the pound. We get it here for about $10 to $12 a pound when it's on special, and about $15 when it's not (needless to say, I don't buy it then!). It's got the same basic flavour as lump crab meat, it's just smaller bits as it's from a different part of the crab. Lump crab meat is ridiculously expensive, so backfin is the way to go for crab cakes. The person at the seafood counter will know exactly what you're talking about if you ask.

    Yeah, I don't buy it at that price, either. And imitation crab would probably work just as well for this recipe! But when it IS $10 or so for the real thing, it's not too bad. You do get six goodsized cakes, so for a special treat (we only make them once or twice during Lent, and maybe once or twice a year otherwise, when my mom is visiting) that's a decent deal. :)

    I made it a point to look for crab meat when I was at the grocer's today. It was $12.99 a one pound can. Guess I won't know what Maryland crab cakes taste like anytime soon. Sigh. Huh?

    Re: Crabcakes Maryland

    Thank you for explaining. I have seen that crab meat in the can. Sometimes it's on sale here for 8-9 bucks. I have never bought it because I had canned crab before in those tuna sized cans and hated it but I have heard those COLD section canned crab in the seafood department do not taste like the stuff I tried. I hope that is true because I would love to get a can sometime if it's tasty!
