Crab cakes and football – that’s what Maryland DOES!
Confession: I’ve never been to Maryland, as far as I can recall. But Wedding Crashers still makes me laugh after seeing it about 50 times, and I love love love crab cakes so it seemed like a good quote to lead into this recipe.
I have made similar versions to these crab cakes a few times, and I think I have finally tweaked them to just the way I like them. I pre-cook my diced peppers and onions prior to adding them to the crab mixture to bring out their full sweetness and the fresh parsley adds appropriate flecks of green spice to the sweet crab and aromatics.
