"I'm from Maryland also. The recipe sounds OK except PLEASE don't shred the crab meat. It should stay in lumps and be handled gently. It's traditional to use Maryland's own Old Bay seasoning, not ho..." See moret sauce. Also, when formed the cakes should be refrigerated for about half an hour, to firm up a little and prevent their breaking up in the pan."
"I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, so if anyone knows a good crabcake, it's me. And this recipe will make you one FINE crabcake! I didn't have dry mustard on hand, but I substituted a bit..." See more of spicy brown, and it worked just fine. A tip - do NOT overmix the crab meat - it will not turn out the way it's supposed to if you do - it's supposed to be lumpy! (People who weren't raised in MD tend not to know this, I've found.) If you can find Old Bay in your supermarket, BUY IT - it makes the difference! And of course, good Maryland crabmeat, if you can! Thanks, Bea, this rivals my own recipe! :-)"
"I am from Maryland and we DO love our crabcakes!! It is important to use fresh, not canned crabmeat, lump is the best. I know this makes it more expensive but it is the difference between great and bo..." See morering Mrs. Paul's. Also, I like to add some Old Bay seasoning to spice it up. Be gentle when mixing together the ingredients so you don't break up the sweet lumps of crabmeat, you don't want it to be fine like catfood!! I also like to saute my crabcakes in butter in a skillet rather than broil them, but either way this is a delicious and authentic recipe. Yummy."
