I am not sure what a Maryland Crab Cake is supposed to taste like, but I have been making this recipe for years and my guests are always disappointed if I do not make them. Whether they are Maryland are not, they are delicious.

Sorry, but none of your Maryland Crab cake recipes are true Maryland Crab Cakes. The true original recipe is still on the Old Bay Seasoning can. OR use the Smith Island recipe.
