The Ultimate Crab Cake

The Ultimate Crab Cake

The Ultimate Crab Cake is so easy to make and people will think you’re super fancy and skilled in the kitchen with this dish. I grew up in Maryland, so I know a good crab cake, so let me say, this is not a Maryland crab cake. This has peppers, onions, which don’t belong in a traditional Maryland crab cake. But, I don’t care, it’s what I like and I’m sure you won’t mind me remixing a traditional crab cake recipe!
