A Guide to Summer Maryland Crab Cakes!

Chesapeake Bay

In Maryland, we love crabs — and there is much to know about the local tradition!

Summer in Maryland means the Baltimore Orioles, kicking back on the porch with

friends and enjoying an ice cold Natty Boh, and digging into some of Maryland’s
finest crab cakes. If you love enjoying crab cakes over the summer, choose

Summer Maryland Crab Cakes 101
Blue crabs are the delicious morsels harvested from the Chesapeake Bay every
summer. Ironically (or maybe coincidentally), the Latin name of the blue crab
translates to “beautiful swimmer.” Not only are crabs beautiful to watch, they are
also delicious to eat. Traditional Maryland crabs are steamed instead of boiling them
to lock in the maximum flavor and appreciate the delicate taste of the crab.
Blue crabs are special, especially in Maryland, and an amazing 50% of the entire
country’s blue crab harvest comes from our waters. Blue crab is also one of the three
core elements of Maryland seafood, including oysters and rockfish.
Soft Shell vs. Hard Shell
Soft shell crabs are the finest that you can get, and you will never need to worry
about picking the meat out of the shell with this variety. Soft shell crabs have molted
within the past day, so their shells are soft and edible. Soft shell crabs are hard to
catch and easy to enjoy, making them a summer Maryland favorite.
What Makes Maryland Crab Cakes Different?
Aside from being made with premium crab meat, Maryland crab cakes are made
with almost no filler for a powerful punch of crab flavor. Marylanders are known for
loving Old Bay seasoning, and Maryland crab cakes wouldn’t be complete without
them. Maryland crab cakes are known for highlighting the delicate taste of fresh
crab, while also packing a lot of flavor into a tiny cake. Maryland crab cakes are the
best that the Bay has to offer!
