St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, which means many residents in Maryland will be gearing up for the holiday of green. The holiday originated in Ireland to celebrate the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday is celebrated on March 17th, the same date as the death of Saint Patrick. The celebration has been linked to all things green, including shamrocks, food items, and of course, beer. However, Maryland residents are finding ways to work some blue into their day of green with Maryland crab cakes from Box Hill.
Our crab cakes may be created with Maryland Blue Crabs, but that doesn’t mean green can’t find its way onto your dinner plate! The easiest way to get green on your plate is through your sides. Maryland blue crab cakes pair well with fresh green salads along with several green vegetables. You can steam asparagus, green beans, and or even spinach to add some green to your St. Patrick’s Day dinner.
Looking to include more traditional elements to your day-of-green dinner? Consider making your own Irish Soda Bread to start off your meal. Potatoes are a big element to a St. Patrick’s Day dinner, so include a baked or mashed potato dish to serve along your crab cakes. Complete your meal with a fun themed cupcake and your staple pint of green beer.
Not sure how to cook your crab cakes? Here are your steps!
- For 8-10 minutes, preheat your over at a temperature of 425 degrees.
- Use a pan without grease, using only a small amount of butter or water to cook your crab cakes on.
