Maryland crab cakes as found overseas

Roland Parker | Jan 31, 201411:19 AM

I'm a former Baltimorean now living in the United Arab Emirates. Today we were at a restaurant in a marina outside Abu Dhabi that featured:

Maryland Crab Cakes served with a corn salsa and a tomato-horseradish remoulade and served with a dollop of pommery mustard.

No crackers in sight. I still had to laugh. The restaurant in question was called "Stars and Stripes" and is apparently a US themed restaurant.

Ok, the tomato-horseradish remoulade is probably just fancy speak for cocktail sauce. But has anyone else encountered bizarre interpretations for what constitutes "Maryland" crab cakes?
