Crab Cakes from a Marylander

I was born and raised in Maryland. When I was younger, I crabbed off the pier at my Grandparents house on the bay. So naturally, I have a crab cake recipe! Old bay for life! 

I chose to fry mine but you can definitely bake too for a healthier version. My opinion, though, is it’s crab cakes. Live on the edge and fry those fools! 

Crab Cakes from a Marylander


-1 lb crab meat

-2/3 sleeve of crushed Ritz

-2 tbsp Parmesan/Romano cheese

-3 tbsp mayo

-1 egg

-1 tsp Dijon mustard

-1 tsp old bay 

-1/2 tsp siracha 

-1 tsp Worcestershire sauce 

-1 tsp lime juice 

-1/4 c sautéed onions 


Mix everything but the crab meat and ritz. Then lightly fold in the crab meat so you don’t break up the meat. You can then fry or bake them! 

I topped mine with Bang Bang Sauce and Coleslaw! But they’re FABULOUS on their own with a tiny dabble of mustard!
Here is my Bang Bang Sauce Recipe: 


-1/4 c mayo 

-1 tbsp Thai sweet chili sauce 

-1/2 tsp siracha (to taste) 

 Mix together and put it on everything!
