Maryland-Style Crab Cakes are sure to transform your home into a fancy restaurant and impress family and friends alike. Jumbo lump crab meat, regular or gluten-free breadcrumbs, seasonings, mayonnaise and mustard are mixed and then seared in a skillet, baked in the oven, or cooked in an air fryer.
Add crab meat, Panko breadcrumbs, chives, and parsley. Stir gently until just combine so as not to break apart the crab meat too much.
Scoop out ⅓ cup of crab cake mixture. Form into a round disc about 1-inch tall. Repeat with remaining mixture until you have 8 crab cakes.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 12-14 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Heat your air fryer to 375°F for 3 minutes.
Cook for 5 minutes, flip them over, and then continue cooking for an additional 5-7 minutes.
Serve crab cakes with a sprinkle of fresh parsley or chives, lemon wedges, and some homemade remoulade sauce or tartar sauce. Enjoy!
