Our Crab Cakes Come From East Coast Blue Crabs
Boxhill crab cakes begin life as blue crabs, also known as Callinectes sapidus, which translates into beautiful swimmer. While some may debate the beauty of a blue crab, no one can deny that their meat is flavorful, dense, and the basis for delectable crab cakes.
The crabbers who work the waterways of the East Coast consistently bring home healthy and heavy blue crabs. For many it’s a family business and we want to make sure it stays that way.
Besides supporting the local economy and family businesses, purchasing crabs locally ensures a better quality of crab for our crab cakes. Other restaurants may purchase their crab meat from large, national processors and seafood distributors, but their crabcakes aren’t as flavorful and authentic as the ones you find at Boxhill!
The blue crabs we use in our Maryland crab cakes are usually delivered to our restaurant within 24 hours of being caught. This guarantees their freshness and flavor. There’s no denying that these crabs are the successful start of our crabcakes.
The crabs are then carefully picked by our experienced workers so you won’t find any shells when you bite into one of our crab cakes – all you’ll get is a burst of flavor.
When you want to order Maryland crab cakes and have them shipped or delivered, you can be sure that what we ship out is fresh and handmade. Of course, we provide detailed cooking instructions that can easily be followed by novice chefs.
The ingredients we use in our crabcakes are authentic and are purchased from local purveyors. Keeping everything fresh and local helps us be able to boast that we have the best crab cakes in Maryland, and anywhere else!
