Eating crab cakes is part and parcel of any trip to Maryland, where you’ll find them fried and served on bread as sandwiches or baked and broiled as a main dish. Here’s a delicious version you can enjoy at home.
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 package imitation crab or 8 ounces of lump crab
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 package Simply Organic Ranch Dip Mix
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs then add next four ingredients. Add in crab meat.
In a separate bowl, blend bread crumbs and Ranch Dip Mix. Add dry ingredients to crab meat mix and stir well.
Shape mix into cakes about 3/4-inch thick and 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Place onto greased baking sheet and bake 10 to 15 minutes on each side.
As an appetizer, offer a choice of tartar, cocktail sauce or a fruit salsa.
Squeeze extra lime juice on crab cakes once baked.
Dig in and saddle up for delicious, well-rounded Ranch flavor. This all-American classic — created by a California dude ranch owner while living in Alaska — is so versatile it can be used as a dip, dressing or ingredient in many recipes.
