  1. I use to hate crab, not snow crab I love them . On a recent trip to Orlando we ate at “ Eddie Vs” yes I’ll give them a plug it was the best food I’ve ever ate and at 64 I’ve ate a lot. Now back to the crab cakes now on the menu was a big crab cake for 2 my wife says I want that for the appetizer Ooo Ok it was so good. Now I am looking for ways to make it at home and here is your channel and a easy to follow recipe. I have everything except the Old Bay seasoning. Thanks for showing this.

  2. Thank you! Sad that is what is considered LUMP crab these days🙄 And I guess no surprise since Alaska is canceling the King/Snow Crab session for 2022🤣🤣

  3. Crab cakes vs md crab cakes,
    Pple these are not even remotely md crab cakes….
    Dont believe me go check out
    munchies, this lady who is a Marylander makes md Crabcakes.
    Rule #1 never mix the way he mix, Crabcakes are gently mixed.
    Dont mean no disrespect sir, it was not my intention……

  4. please tell me you've tried them as a burger. I have and it makes me feel like I'm on a different level
    toasted n' buttered buns with graded mozzarella cheese melted on top. It's a sensation

  5. They look great ! I serve mine with sour cream, a little tomato paste, creole seasoning, and a little jalapeño sauce! I’ve used this sauce for all fried food! Great video!

  6. As a Marylander, thank you for not adding peppers or onions even though you mentioned adding additional things. I cringe when I watch videos with green peppers added. The way you make them is the way we Marylanders make them. Only spice to use is Old Bay.

  7. Its not even lump meat and no one from MD puts any bread crumb cracker or panko BS in their crabs cake. Cooking is all wrong. Go to g&m crab cakes then you will see what he should be talking about. Relish, remulade wtf u will never see that in an authentic MD crab house, this boy should learn what he is talking about

  8. Noooooo. Authentic MD crab cakes never, ever use leg meat! Jumbo lump blue crab only, no Dijon. No "other" crab substitute. Beaten egg, white bread risked in milk etc. Google the best crab cakes to buy IN Maryland, spend the money to have them shipped to you, cook as directed. They will cost $$ but worth the experience.

  9. I've been looking for a recipe with just a small amount of filler in it. We've dropped our own crab traps forever now. We'd get about 2-3 dozen at a time. We always had way too much & gave it away to our neighbors. I only liked fresh hot crabs with butter and crab boil. My husband wants me to make crab cakes. I can finally say sure! Thanks
