Based on the original Phillips Seafood Restaurant recipe developed by Shirley Phillips over 60 years ago, this crab cake is packed full of sweet, flavorful crab meat. A creamy Maryland style mix is accented by hints of tangy mustard and zesty lemon. A touch of butter ensures that they cook up to a rich, golden brown perfection every time. Easy to bake or pan sauté, Phillips Maryland Style Crab Cakes offer a convenient restaurant-quality meal that you can prepare at home and pair beautifully with Phillips Cocktail or Tartar Sauce.
