Jumbo Crabs and Cake Dinner

Thomas Shoal Crab House

Flash your Eyes on these Fat Crab Beauties!
Today, we take you to Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse, beaming strong rays and booming fog horn sounds for vessels traveling into the South River for over a generation. Near Annapolis and all the blue crab frenzy, we aptly call our New Thomas Point Shoal Jumbo Crab Dinner after this historic lighthouse. Built back in 1875, this friend to crabbers and other boaters serves as the last lighthouse in its original condition without any modifications. Sitting 43 feet above high tide on screw-piles fastened into the rocky and muddy bay floor, this hexagonal lighthouse gets major gazes. So, in celebration of fat crab season, we pair our best dozen jumbos and ginormous 8 oz. crab cakes for an autumn feast named after this famous lighthouse. Top rated crabs and cakes, honoring the best of the Chesapeake Bay Culture!

Cook your Crab Cakes Right from the Freezer!

Golden brown and crispy on the outside and warm and gooey inside is the goal for a plated traditional Maryland Crab Cake. This authentic recipe uses jumbo lump with fresh mayonnaise, eggs, crushed crackers, and bay spices. Packed with more crab meat than recipes calling for peppers or breading, traditional cakes can easily fall apart with the prized-size meat portions. Cooked from frozen ensures the cakes don’t end up served as a crumbling mess; worse yet, a “scrambled” cake. Flash-frozen cakes guarantee texture and taste, so careful manipulation of the cooking temperatures will bring the cakes back to their original freshness. Salty-sweet, fluffy and mouth-watering!

Baking and then finishing with a Quick Pan Searing achieves the best results for a frozen cake. Baking lends itself as a healthy choice with less oil, but with a slow cook that ensures tenderness. Lightly drizzle both sides of the cake with olive oil and sprinkle with Old Bay.  Place them in a preheated oven at 350 °F on a tray covered with baking paper. Cook for 15 minutes and then turn them over and bake for another 10 minutes. To ensure a crispy golden-brown result, remove them from the oven and place them in a skillet at medium-high heat for a minute per side. Feel free to press down with a spatula for that much sought after “hockey-puck” quality for a perfect fit in a Kaiser roll. Keep it simple. Cooking from frozen is your secret. Enjoy the accolades you’ll receive from your culinary excellence!
