When summer arrives, most Maryland residents are looking for new ways to eat healthier and get into shape. However, the summer season is filled with sweet temptations and greasy grub, which can make it difficult to stay on the straight and narrow. Instead of missing out on all that summer has to offer, Maryland residents can stay healthy this summer by enjoying crab cakes made from the Maryland blue crab.
Maryland crab cakes can be a healthy substitute for the traditional summer hamburger or cheeseburger. Instead of slathering a potato bun with ketchup and mustard, reach for a large leaf of lettuce to create your own crab cake burger. Top the crab cake with a dab of low-fat tartar sauce to create the ideal healthy burger. So how is a crab cake healthier than a burger?
