“Crab Cakes and football. That’s what Maryland does!”
Bradley Cooper was onto something when he highlighted this delightful ball of deliciousness known as the crab cake in the popular movie Wedding Crashers – which was filmed in Maryland. Many have tried to recreate the Maryland Crab Cake all over the country, but it’s just not the same. Take our famous Armadillo’s Crab Cake for example. Our recipe is top-secret, but we will let you in on a couple key ingredients for making the perfect cake of crab, Annapolis-style.
- Lump Blue Crab (not just any type of crab will do and back fin crab meat is ideal)
- Old Bay Seasoning
- Tartar and Cocktail Sauce on the side
- Lemon Wedge (garnish)
Another important thing to keep in mind while making an authentic Maryland Crab Cake? Don’t use a ton of filler. Throughout the country, chef’s make this mistake. Too much filler takes away from the delicious flavor of the blue crabs meat, which is sweet and juicy. Here at Armadillo’s the Crab Cake is one of our most popular items..you will find it as an entree, on the crab nachos, added to salads and more! To enjoy one of the best Crab Cakes in Annapolis, we invite you to come in and enjoy a delicious one today!
