I love crab cakes. I lived in Md for 3 years, and go to the beach in Delaware every summer, and the highlight of this trip is ALWAYS Mickeys Crab Shack! Best crabs ever! Soft shell crabs and Crab cakes are a Maryland/ Delaware specialty- and my mom perfected the Maryland crab cake and has passed the recipe on to me! I made it last weekend for my bf and he loved them! They go great with cole slaw- my mom's recipe which I made a few changes too and is so easy to make and is a great easy meal any time!
Maryland Crab cakes:
1 lb lump crab meat ( they sell it at whole foods)
1 tbsp light ranch dressing ( or mayo what ever you like better)
1/4 c pico de gallo ( adds a bit of spice)
1 tsp black pepper
Combine ingredients mix well. Broil for 20 min or until light brown on the outside!
1 pack broccoli slaw
4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 c canola oil
4 tbsp splenda (or to taste)
Mix all ingredients together and chill!
Enjoy together- its a great summer meal!
