In Maryland, crab cakes are as familiar as bread and butter. This classic “from scratch” recipe features fresh lump crabmeat that is sensationally seasoned with OLD BAY, the choice spice of seafood lovers. (If you’ve never had a crab cake, please do yourself an enormous favor and try one. You’ll see what all the fuss is about.)
