Our classic recipe, perfected in the 1960’s at Angelina’s Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland. This Chesapeake Bay delicacy is crafted by hand using 100% domestic jumbo-lump blue crab meat – no imported crab meat!! We add only as much filler as necessary to hold the lumps together and insist on premium ingredients at every turn, including handmade white bread crumbs and fresh parsley. A palette of subtle spices brings forth the natural qualities of the most flavorful and sought-after crab meat available. Simply put, these are the finest quality crab cakes your money can buy.
Since 1952, Angelina’s of Maryland has been making its famous Maryland blue crab cakes.

Cooking Instructions: Crab cakes arrive uncooked and must be thoroughly heated. If frozen, remove plastic and thaw in refrigerator or microwave on paper towel prior to cooking as described.
Sauté: Over medium heat, sauté crab cakes in a small amount of butter or oil (about 1T). Heat each side until nicely browned. You may gently flatten crab cakes for even heating and browning. Add lemon juice or white wine to taste. Cover skillet and simmer for 5-8 minutes until centers reach 165°F.
Conventional Oven: Preheat oven to 350°F. Place crab cakes on baking pan and top with butter, lemon juice and/or white wine to taste. Bake to an internal temperature of 165°F (approx. 25-30 minutes for 4 ounce crab cakes). For crispier crab cakes, finish by broiling to desired color.
Microwave Oven: Place crab cakes on a microwave-safe plate and top with 2 teaspoons of lemon or white wine and a teaspoon of butter or margarine. Cover and heat on High (4-5 minutes for one or two 8-ounce crab cakes, 3-4 minutes for one or two 4-ounce crab cakes, 2-3 minutes for one or two 1.5-ounce crab cakes). Longer cooking times are necessary for preparing more than two crab cakes at a time. Cook until centers reach 165°F. Cooking times are approximate as microwave wattages vary.
