There is a time to be creative and a time to accept that the classic recipe is the best. In the case of Maryland crab cakes, it is the latter. This timeless seafood appetizer works great as a warm-up for a more elaborate seafood main course or as a delightful bite-sized contrast to something like grilled steak.
I grew up around seafood, and though the classic Maryland crab cake may owe its name to a location far removed from my childhood home, it is an appetizer cherished by most any community close to salt water. And yes, Maryland crab cakes have an addictive savory taste: In the right mood, I could gorge myself on them without no need for anything else other than a nice helping of beer or wine.
Perhaps the best thing about this appetizer, though, is the versatility that it offers your menu: Obviously, it goes well with a larger seafood course, but it also pairs nicely with something like a grilled steak.
