Maryland Crab Cakes

Here is my variation on a traditional Maryland Crab cake. We started vacationing in Maryland where we started making these, but now we rent a house in North Carolina, thus the southern influence on the recipe.

Servings: 4-5

Ingredients

  • 1 lb crab, fresh if possible
  • 1 cup Ritz Crackers, crumbled
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Mix together all ingredients and form into small patties.
  2. In a frying pan on medium heat, melt a little butter if necessary, then fry each patty for 3 or 4 minutes a side until just browned and firm. Serve hot.
