Crab Cakes are an American dish which combines crab meat with ingredients such as eggs, mayonnaise, bread crumbs and other seasonings. It is thought that Crab Cakes were introduced to Maryland and the other American colonies from English settlers. Many crabs that are harvested to make Crab Cakes live in the waters of the Chesapeake Bay area of Maryland.
Crab Cakes may be sautéed, fried or baked. Crab Cakes are often served on a bun as a sandwich, or smaller forms may be served as an hors d'oeuvre or appetizer. A gourmet version of the Crab Cake has less filler and is made with more lump crab meat. Crab Cakes made with blue crab, which are native to the Chesapeake Bay area, are traditionally thought to be the best in quality and taste. Maryland Crab Cakes are often served with sauces such as tartar sauce, mustard or a remoulade.
