Maryland Crab Cakes With Tartar Sauce

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by FLUFFSTER

I live a long, long way from Maryland! I live in the desert, and the closest thing I get to Maryland, is a street names Maryland Pkwy. This is a delicious recipe. Seriously, though, this is a great thing to have as an appetizer, a meal, of just a snack. Serve with a crusty, loaf of french bread, and maybe a glass of white wine, and you're all set.
