Box Hill Crab Cakes specializes in delicious Maryland crab cakes. One of the best parts of great crab cakes is their ability to taste well with whatever condiments and flavors you want to add to them. So, the next time you order a mouth-watering batch of crab cakes from Box Hill, consider the following creative flavor combinations to serve your family and friends.
Russian Crab Cake
It may sound unconventional, but you can eat crab cakes cold! However, the trick to enjoying it cold is to add some equally chilled salad elements. If you place a chilled crab cake on toast, with sliced tomato and Russian dressing, you’ve got yourself a crisp, refreshing snack.
Crab Cake, “Roast Beef Style”
This punchy combination of sour cream, mayonnaise, and horseradish is typically served with a heft of roast beef. However, the pungent flavors can pair just as well with a hot and fresh crab cake.
Gazpacho Crab Cake
This dish combines the elements of hot and cold. Placing a warm, fresh crab cake over top of a shallow bowl of chilled gazpacho is a fun option for fans of the soup, and for whoever wants to add more varieties of texture and heat in their meal.
Deep South Crab Cake
If you want to take your Maryland Crab Cake and introduce it to something even more Southern, add it to a hoagie roll and make a Louisiana Crab Cake po’boy sandwich. Be sure to spread your hoagie rolls with butter and toast them first, add a sauce (you can make a lemon aioli, which combines the flavors of herbs, lemon, honey, garlic, and mayonnaise) and place your crabcakes on top. Place lettuce and tomatoes (or any of your favorite toppings) on top of the crab cakes, and chow down! With po’boys, bigger is better.
Corny Crab Cake
Similar to the gazpacho cake, for this creation, you will place your fresh crab cakes on top of a shallow bowl of corn soup. This semi-sweet soup is of a creamy consistency, and it will be as equally hot as your crab cake. The subtlety of the flavor works well to underline the main impact of the crab cake’s taste.
Crab Cake Burger
This one is easy, and you may be doing it already! Get a jumbo crab cake and two large brioche buns. Toast the buns for maximum crunch. Spread mayonnaise, or your spread of choice, onto the buns before placing your crab cake on the bottom piece. Add your favorite toppings–lettuce, tomato, coleslaw, onions, peppers–and craft your crab cake “burger.” Eating it with fries wouldn’t be such a bad idea, either.
Crab Cake Salad
For those of us trying to fit more green foods into our lives, that doesn’t mean we need to cut out the fun things like crab cakes. You can add your crab cake to a salad! There are countless varieties of salads, so how you shape this dish depends on your preferences. However, a Cobb salad would be a fun option to add heaps of flavor, because it’s a salad that is already proven to taste well with meat added.
Fruity Crab Cake
This one is especially yummy paired with a spicy crab cake. In a blender, puree mango chunks with one tablespoon of vegetable oil and one tablespoon of red chili sauce. Spoon the mixture onto the side of your plate or into a small bowl. The mix works well as a dipping sauce as you eat your crab cake. The smooth texture of the mango, and its mellow flavor, combined with the sharp punch of the chili sauce and the crab cake, works as an exciting flavor experience for your tastebuds.
