Duffy's Maryland Crab Cakes

old bay seasoning

Thanks to Chef Eric Parker, who kindly supplied the recipe used at all the Duffy's Sports Grill locations across southern Florida. The crab cakes have a lot of flavor and just enough cracker crumbs to hold together. Old Bay Seasoning, a staple for seafood cooks in the Chesapeake Bay region, can be found in the spice section of most supermarkets. Maryland cooks would never make crab cakes without Old Bay Seasoning.

old bay seasoning

1 egg
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire
1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
1 tablespoon grated onion
1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
1 pound lump crab meat
6 tablespoons coarsely crumbled Ritz crackers
Vegetable oil for deep frying or butter for pan frying
White pepper and coarse salt to taste

1. In a large bowl, whisk the egg slightly. Whisk in the mayonnaise, Worcestershire, Old Bay, onion, mustard and parsley. Carefully fold in the crab meat and finally the crackers.

2. Heat oil for deep frying to 350 degrees.

3. Form the crab mixture into 8 level cakes, each about the size of a hockey puck. Slide into hot oil and deep fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes. (Or pan-fry in clarified butter over medium-high heat, turning once.) Season to taste with white pepper and coarse salt and serve.

Makes 4 servings of 2 crab cakes each.
