Crab Cakes Baltimore-Style PT15M https://img3.recipesrun.com/201907/2019/0802/12/6/223150/300x200x90.jpg This is a classic crab cake inspired by those that were served at Obrycki's Crab House, a rollicking fish restaurant in a former row house on East Pratt Street in Baltimore. It's my favorite crab cake recipe. If you don’t overmix and don’t pack your mounds too tightly, you will experience pure, unadulterated crab cake heaven. They are simply delicious. 12 servings Ingredients: 1/4 cup Vegetable oil 1/2 cup Finely ground fresh bread crumbs 1 pound Crab meat, lump preferred, shell and cartilage removed 1/4 tsp.
