Muffin-Tin Crab Cakes

We've taken the frying and fuss out of crab cakes by shaping and baking them in muffin tins. For the best taste, look for pasteurized crabmeat in the refrigerator case at your market's fish counter, a better choice than canned varieties. Make It a Meal: Try these cakes with some tangy tartar sauce and coleslaw.

Chipotle-Sauced Crab Cakes

The smoky flavor of chipotle chile peppers gives the stir-together sauce gusto that complements the subtly seasoned crab cakes. To tame the spiciness of the sauce, remove the seeds from the pepper before you add it.

Chipotle-Sauced Crab Cakes

Classic Maryland Crab Cakes

This crab cake is the real deal--no fussy stuff, no flavor disguises. Just pure, sweet crab meat, and lots of it. You add in just enough egg and fresh bread crumbs to bind the crabmeat together. White sandwich bread yields the absolute best cakes--soft and flaky at the same time. Use just enough Old Bay seasoning to give a hint of its presence or it will overpower the crab.
