With the natural sweetness of crab meat and a little zesty seasoning, a good crab cake makes any meal feel like a special occasion. Enjoy the amazing flavor of lump crab for brunch or dinner by pairing our Hickory Farms Maryland Style Crab Cakes and dipping sauces.
The Crab Cakes
Our Pfaelzer Brothers crab cakes are made from 65% lump crab meat give you all of the natural crab flavor you crave. Whether you prefer to bake, broil, or fry your cakes, you can whip up a luxurious meal right from your freezer.
A Classic Combination
When thinking of flavors that pair well with seafood, lemon and dill are two of the first to come to mind. Bring these traditional flavor profiles together in one delicious sauce for a perfect accompaniment to our crab cakes.
First, create a creamy base for your sauce by mixing together mayonnaise and buttermilk. Then, add some chopped dill, fresh parsley, and minced garlic. For a bright note, stir in a bit of lemon juice and lemon zest. Once everything is mixed together, leave it in the refrigerator for a bit to thicken.
Bring the Heat
To jazz up your crab cakes, try adding a little heat with a spicy mayo sauce. For this super simple dipping sauce, just mix together a dab of mayo with some freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt and pepper, and as much chili sauce as you can handle.
A Spicy Take on Tartar
What happens when you take the basic ingredients of tartar sauce and add in some spice? You get a bold sauce with just enough crunch. To make this kicked up version of the classic seafood pairing, mix mayonnaise together with horseradish, chili sauce, chopped capers, shallots, and apple cider vinegar. Finish the sauce with lemon juice and our Sweet Hot Mustard.
