We all know the importance of crab cakes in Maryland. Famous for the crab cake, Maryland has a slew of different crab cake recipes that are sure to make your mouth water. In fact, we’ve scoured up a few that will make a statement and keep all your guests hungry for more — if they aren’t already! Here are some fun recipe ideas to help ensure your crab cakes are really the talk of the town. 

Add Some Spice To Your Life

What’s better than taking something delicious like a crab cake and infusing it with some heat? Nothing! In fact, rubbing some chili and lime with your crab cake mixture can really do wonders for the overall taste of the dish. Another way to spice up the traditional crab cake is to add some lemons and capers to the hearty mixture. Fry them up and enjoy. 

Never Forget The Sauce

What goes great with crab cakes? Sauce! In fact, sometimes it’s the sauce that can make or break the crab cake. A fun aioli or a chipotle and sundried tomato sauce can really add some flair to your crab cake that everyone is bound to enjoy. Another option you can add is a fun mango-style salsa which can really provide some fun flavors into the dish that really highlights all the flavors of the crab cake in general. 

Bottom Line

At the end of the day, knowing what to add to your crab cakes to ensure the flavor and texture is still there can be overwhelming. But, experimenting with different sauces and infusing some heat and spice into your dishes can really provide a nice medium to showcase some excellent flavor profiles that you and all your guests and family are sure to enjoy.
