How do you make an excellent crab cake at home? Believe it or not, it can be done with the right ingredients and a good recipe.
This crab cake recipe was passed down from my great-grandmother, to my grandmother, then to my mother and now me. I can still remember my great-grandmother picking through the crab meat, removing shells and mixing this recipe together by feel. Her secret was using fresh jumbo lump crab meat, Miracle Whip and pan frying in fresh Crisco shortening.
