Crab cakes have always been my daddies favorite food. Just plain not fancy but, they are fancy and are always in the appetizers sections of fancy seafood restaurants. So a lot of people are intimidated to make them at home. DON'T BE.
They're so easy but there are two (2) things you can not forgo when making them... Ritz crackers and Old Bay seasoning.
[I’ll show how to make your own Old Bay Seasoning mix to store in your pantry later]
Old Bay Seasoning is a classic mix of many different kinds of spices that are used to flavor seafood dishes. You can also mix it into mashed potatoes, vegetable dishes, and stir-fries, and it's excellent with chicken as well.
You should use and good mayo- It's the perfect binder, and its subtle creaminess won't compete with the crab. In fact, it lets the crab meat shine! Ma
