Crab cakes seem to be on almost every menu. One of the recent trends is small, crispy, shareable crab cake bites. We took that idea with our classic crab cake recipe and add a crunchy crust of crushed pretzel crumbs and paired it with a warm beer-cheese dipping sauce.
Crab fries these are definitely one of the hot menu items of the moment. Some have actual crab, some just the essence of crab (like some Old Bay seasoning). Well I learned years ago at my restaurant, Taste, that when the menu says “crab fries” people are expecting some crab meat (otherwise call them Old Bay fries, IMO). Well these are fully loaded with crab, an IPA spiked beer-cheese sauce, some chorizo and some extra Cheddar and scallions for good measure.
