As a native Marylander, of course, I have my favorite crab cake recipe. Make sure you use genuine meat from the blue crab. The highest quality "picked" crabmeat, with the least amount of cartilage and shells, can usually be purchased from seafood specialty restaurants.*
* I purchase my crabmeat from a local grocery or Costco Warehouse that sells freshly picked crabmeat from the Tidewater area of North Carolina.
