www.crabcake.com That is the site for Angelina's restaurant on Harford Road in Baltimore which has won the Baltimore Magazine title of best crab cake in Baltimore for 16 out of the last 20 years and for over 10 years in the Baltimore City Paper along with numerous other awards.
THEY ACTUALLY PUBLISH THE RECIPE FOR THEIR CRAB CAKE.
IF YOU ARE TOO LAZY TO MAKE IT YOU CAN BUY IT DIRECTLY FROM THEM AND THEY WILL SHIP IT TO YOU.
This is the absolute best crab cake I have ever had. Remember my post of three or four months ago of searching for the best crab cake throughout not just the state of Maryland but all over the U. S.? Well this is it! And, My God, but they're actually publishing the recipe!
If anyone makes these remember you MUST use lump Maryland crab meat (it's sweeter). NOT the lump crab meat that is sold at Costco under the Phillip's label. That's not Maryland or even Carolina or Virginia crab meat. It's from the Pacific Rim and not as sweet. Go to Maine Avenue and buy lump for $22.00. Otherwise spend $38.00 and buy it from Fresh Fields or Sutton Place. But use LUMP crab meat. If you can't get it don't even bother to make it. Part of Angelina's greatness are large chunks of crab meat, so many that the eight ounce baseball sized crab cakes appear to be all lump and no filler.
Anyway, this is it. The crab cake to end all crab cakes debates.
