Maryland is famous for its crab cakes. They are usually made with blue crab, found in the Chesapeake Bay, but you can give them a West Country twist by using some of the delicious crab found on our shores
450g crab meat
1 egg, beaten
5 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp mustard
1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
1 Combine breadcrumbs, egg, mayonnaise, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and seasoning and mix well.
2 Pour mixture over crabmeat and fold in taking care not to break up the lumps.
3 Form into six cakes and pat until just firm, then deep fry at 180˚C for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
