“There's nothing like a good Maryland crab cake! I was born in Maryland, and I've found that they just can't make crab cakes up here that even compare to the one's by the Chespeake Bay! I choose to bake these in the oven, but they can also be pan fried in oil until golden brown. Can be served with remoulade sauce, tartar sauce, mustard, or my roasted red pepper sauce. After baking, extra crab cakes can be frozen. I usually defrost, and then reheat cakes in a nonstick pan until heated through and slightly crisp on the outside.”
