Our jumbo lump crab meat is excellent for making your own crab cakes. It's a bit more expensive, but your crab cakes and guests will both love you for it! Maryland jumbo lump crab meat contains only blue crab meat and has a distinctly different taste than the different kinds of crab meat available at your local grocery store.
There are many different methods to prepare fresh lump crab meat, but using them in a crab cake is one of the most popular ways — and for a good reason. If you'd like to learn how to make cakes using our lump Maryland crab meat, follow the instructions below.
In a bowl, whisk together the butter, eggs, sour cream, parsley, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, salt, and cayenne, and gently stir in the crab meat and the bread crumbs.
Form 1/2-cup measures of the mixture into twelve 3/4-inch-thick cakes and transfer the crab cakes as they are formed to a baking sheet sprinkled with half the cornmeal. Sprinkle the crab cakes with the remaining cornmeal and chill them, covered with plastic wrap, for at least 1 hour or overnight. In a large, heavy skillet, heat the oil over moderately high heat until it is hot but not smoking, and use it to sauté the crab cakes in batches, turning them once, for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden, transferring them as they are cooked to paper towels to drain.
You can keep the crab cakes warm on another baking sheet in a 200°F. oven. Serve the crab cakes with the tarragon tartar sauce and the lemon wedges. This recipe makes about 12 crab cakes, which serves around six people.
When you buy crab meat online from Harbour House Crabs, you also have the option to purchase backfin crab meat. While the flavor tastes similar to our jumbo lump crab meat, it's made up of smaller pieces from the crab's body which are looser and have a different texture.
