Our Box Hill crab cakes are known for being created with only Maryland blue crab meat. While many believe it is the way we prepare our crab cakes that make them so delicious, however we believe it is our dedication to using only Maryland blue crab meat in our recipes.
While Maryland residents will always defend their crustacean as the most delicious, they might be onto something. When compared to other crab meat such as snow crab and king crab meat, the Maryland blue crab can be considered the most delectable. This is because Maryland blue crab meat is known to be versatile meat that can be used in several ways. The most common way to consume Maryland blue crab meat is during the summer when crabs are seasoned and steamed. Individuals typically find themselves faced with a crab mallet and Old Bay seasoning while picking through their steamed crabs. Another common way Maryland blue crab meat is consumed is through a crab cake, our favorite way. Maryland crab meat can be combined with bread crumbs and seasoning to create a crab cake that highlights the sweetness of the meat that residents have come to know and love. Maryland blue crab meat can also be used in traditional soup recipes like Maryland crab soup and cream of crab soup. The meat of the Maryland blue crab can also be used to top salads along with chicken, steak, and other main entrees.
