One thing we love all year round is a good crab cake.

recipes of all is the Old Bay crab cake recipe which is found right on the can.
There are lots of recipes that include diced peppers, celery, onions and lots

If you're using a recipe with a lot of add-in's don't waste your money buying
lump crab meat.
The perfect crab cake recipe consists of sweet lump crab meat with just enough
added to hold it together and give it a bit of flavor. Flavorful and sweet lump

why we like this recipe from Jimmy Cantler's Riverside Inn in Annapolis Maryland
so much. It's actually more like a crab imperial.

Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes
Cantler's Riverside Inn, Annapolis
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoons salt (original recipe calls for 1 1/2 teaspoons)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons Worcestershire
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
pound Maryland jumbo lump crab meat
Preheat the broiler.
a large bowl, combine the egg yolk, salt, pepper, mustard, Worcestershire sauce,
mayonnaise and parsley. Then, gently fold in the crab meat (be careful not to
break up the lumps). Shape into cakes and broil for 5 minutes.
tips: This particular recipe is more like a crab imperial. I form the crab
cakes on a piece of aluminum foil on the baking sheet and then place them in the
refrigerator for at least 20 minutes before cooking. You may want to add a second
egg yolk or a bit more mayo to help the crab cakes stay together. The original
recipe calls for 1 and 1 /2 teaspoons of salt. I changed it to 1/2 teaspoon. When
I've added 1 1/2 teaspoons the crab cakes were inedible. Be aware that some brands
of crab meat are EXTREMELY salty. You may want to sample the crab meat
before you add salt to the mixture. I sometimes use a mix of 1/2 pound of jumbo
and 1/2 pound of backfin crabmeat.
