The Best Ways To Eat Baltimore Crabs

Costas Inn Baltimore Crabs crab dish

Try these excellent flavor combinations the next time you enjoy a Baltimore crab dish.

When it comes to delicious and juicy Baltimore crabs, there are so many innovative and delicious ways to enjoy the delectable dish. Whether you steam your crabs or eat them via a crab cake, Baltimore is notorious for having the best crabs available. The reality is, we are proud to say that you are guaranteed to get the best-tasting crabs in town by visiting us at Costas Inn. Ultimately, you can’t go wrong with your choice of crab — but knowing the best dishes to pair with your crabs can be a bit more challenging. To maximize your flavor profile, consider these delectable dishes to complement your crab dish the next time you go out to eat crabs. 

Cajun-Flavored Sides

There is nothing better than pairing a crab dish with a Cajun-style side no matter where you are from. In fact, having Cajun flavors combined with typical flavors associated with a delicious crab dish like Old Bay spice can be highly complementary. The reality is, familiar Cajun dishes like Cajun rice and other commonly found southern dishes like hush puppies can make a great addition to any crab dish.

Atlantic-Flavored Side Dishes

Another great addition to a crab dish would be any Atlantic flavor you might find closer to home here in the Baltimore area. As you’ll begin to notice, some of the best flavors are right in town when it comes to a flavor profile that highly compliments your next crab dish. The reality is, steamed crabs tend to be a hallmark staple of any breakfast, lunch, or dinner in this area. Now, people are more open to trying new flavors like corn on the cob and red potatoes. Keeping it as simple as possible can enhance the flavor profile of your entire crab dish.
