This classic Old Bay Crab Cake recipe is a traditional favorite made with jumbo lump crab meat and Old Bay seasoning.
These crab cakes are perfect for a beach vacation, as a comfort dish on a cold night or an impressive appetizer when hosting guests. The lump meat is mixed with just the right amount of breading and the perfect blend of seasonings to provide a traditional Maryland-style crab cake flavor.
How should I serve my crab cakes?
- on a sandwich roll with a spicy chipotle mayonnaise, cocktail sauce or spicy mustard
- on a bed of greens with a squeeze of lemon and Garlicky Avocado Aioli
- on a Caesar salad
- with roasted veggies or potatoes
Why do I need to refrigerate them before cooking?
Chilling them before cooking keeps them from breaking apart when you flip them.
Are these freezer-friendly?
Yep! You can follow the prep instructions, wrap and freeze your cakes or you can cook them, let them cool completely and freeze them in an airtight container.
