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.
This dish is part of our family Christmas Eve celebration every year. I love baked stuffed shrimp, but so many restaurants here prepare their shrimp piled high with Ritz crackers drenched in butter. I think the crabmeat stuffing adds somethng a bit more special. Prep time includes the stuffing's cooling time.
I was born in Maryland, and crab dip was served at all family functions since as long as I can remember. No "true" Baltimore native can NOT have a good recipe for crab dip. (It can be made using "low fat" sour cream, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese, but I always make this for parties, so I go for the full blown)!
This recipe is close to my favorite appetizer from my favorite restaurant in Anchorage, Alaska. It's creamy and delicious served with thinly sliced crusty bread.This is different from most crab dips posted here because it doesn't call for cream cheese.
If your a fan of egg rolls like I am, give these a try. The asparaus gives them a nice crunch, and the crab meat mixed with the garlic and ginger gives the filling something extra special. The dipping sauces are fun. Beware of the peanut sauce, it's really HOT.
