Love Maryland style crab cakes? An authentic Maryland style crab cake is all crab without any mashed potato filler. This summery treat sings with the flavour of crab seasoned with Old Bay seasoning and a touch of green onion. Nothing quite beats a real Maryland style crab cake.
There are some things are non negotiable with Maryland style crab cakes. Avoid using tinned crab, use fresh crab meat. Also Old Bay seasoning is a must. I picked up a canister in my US travels and truthfully it hasn't been used much because I only really think about using it for crab cakes but I'm sure that it has loads of other uses.
So now that I've been given the all clear for food I can eat seafood freely except for barramundi which I can do in a controlled setting at the allergist's. Still it had been a couple of weeks since I was given the all clear and I was too scared to do it in case something happened.
But I decided that perhaps the solution at least for my anxiety is to eat things just near the hospital. So one day, I took some crab cakes and sat near the hospital to eat them. It felt a bit strange but definitely not stranger than going into shock. And there was no need to enter the hospital which was a huge relief! I may get quickly tired of eating things in front of the hospital (the ambiance is missing a certain something) but for now, it's helping to relieve some anxiety!
So tell me Dear Reader, have you ever eaten food in a strange place? My friend once ate food in a bathroom! And have you ever tried Maryland style crab cakes? Do you have any Old Bay seasoning and if so do you have any suggestions on how to use it?
