It’s warm outside, the grill is being fired up, and it is time to enjoy another beautiful summer in Maryland. Summer in Maryland also means one other delicious thing—crab cakes!

Here are some tips for great grilled crab cakes this summer.
Grilling Crab Cakes 101
Obviously, you can’t just place a crab cake directly on the surface of the grill or it will stick and possibly drop into the fire. Use a cast iron skillet on the surface of your grill to give your crab cakes delicious flavor. Make sure that you use Box Hill crabcakes for delicious, high-quality jumbo lump crab meat and just enough breading to hold the delicate cake together. Once you have the crab cakes ready to grill, light some charcoal to create a very hot fire. Once the charcoal has become very hot, pour 4 tablespoons of oil into your cast iron skillet. Place your crab cakes into the oil and put the cast iron skillet it an area of indirect heat, not right next to the coals. This grilling method actually simulates a broiler when the dome is closed. Check your crab cakes after about ten minutes to flip them and get the other side a beautiful golden brown.
- Russian dressing
- Mango or fruit puree
