prepared yellow mustard
mayonnaise, or to taste
chopped fresh parsley
cooked crabmeat, flaked
vegetable oil for frying
Wow! This is an awesome and amazingly easy recipe!
I served it on a bed of romaine with a chili mayo sauce drizzled over the cakes. Yum!
Hint to all use Bisquik instead of pancake mix. The consistency was perfect!
The pancake batter (which BTW is not original to the "true" Maryland crabcake, masks the flavor of the crabmeat.
I was born and live in Baltimore Maryland and worked at three fine dining resteraunts growing up. A maryland crab cake is crab meat, mayonaise, eggs,bread crumbs, and spices, the BEST is the McCormick crab cake classic recipe its nots cheap but it allows the rich clean flavor of the crab meat to come through in the finish product if they sell the seasoning in your supermarket try it..p.s. A MARYLAND CRABCAKE IS BROILED NEVER FRIED OR PANFRIED
i was a bit leary of the pancake mix... but it was AWESOME
The sweetness in the pancake mix goes well with the crab. I added a little Old Bay instead of parsley.
This was not as good as I thought it would be. The pancake mix made it too doughy, but if you don't use as much as recipe calls for, it won't stay together while cooking in oil. It tastes more like a crab pancake.
Old bay automatically makes this a five star recipe and if you are not from the Eastern Shore of MD where we good country folk live and breathe seafood, yes you would beleive that you broil a real MD Crabcake and not fry it...NOT SO! ALL of the BEST restaurants on the Eastern SHore fry them...Old Mill, Suicide's...can NOT wait to get back! And for the lady who said it was a crab pancake, use less pancake mix. There are MANY variations, you may want to try bread crumbs. I have even done them with Hawaiian rolls. No imitating a MD Crab cake!
I am a not so very good cook, or so my kids tell me, and despite the fact that I am almost sure i messed this up just a bit, they tasted fantastic! Super easy and really yummy! Thanks
I did use old bay instead of parsley as well, and LOVED the fact that I could cook this with things I had on hand!
