Having lived in the Chesapeake area I am picky about my crab cakes. This is the recipe from the back of the Old Bay can back in the day. http://www.oldbay.com/Recipes...

Regardless of which recipe you use, you have to use good (expensive) crab - preferably dungeness. No point having crab texture with no crab taste.

While I agree with bigpan on using good crab, I think there are a lot of people on the East Coast who would argue that Chesapeake blue crabs are are the true crabcake crab. I love Dungeness, but there's nothing like a Maryland crabcake, made from all lump meat and the barest amount of filler.

The simpler, the better. Mix mayo, lemon juice, and Old Bay seasoning- stirring to combine. Gently combine with crab and a small amount of breadcrumbs, taking care not to break the crab lumps. Saute in butter in an ovenproof pan on one side. Once browned, place whole pan in hot oven without flipping until hot throughout. Enjoy!
