Crab cakes are often made with milk, breadcrumbs, eggs, mayonnaise, onions, and other seasonings which usually include Old Bay. Crab cakes are baked, grilled, fried or sautéed and served hot with a dip. There are two main styles of crab cakes and those are restaurant and boardwalk. The restaurant ones which are also known as gourmet contain no filler, just lump crabmeat, and are served on an open-faced sandwich or a platter. The boardwalk style is usually breaded, deep-fried, and served on a hamburger bun.

Crab cakes are usually served with a sauce, and this might be tartar sauce, mustard, remoulade, or ketchup. Remoulade (pronounced reh-moo-lahd) is a traditional sauce from France, although the Louisiana version of it is better known in the United States. Remoulades are based on oil or mayonnaise, and most of the Louisiana ones also feature garlic, paprika, Cajun spices or mustard. The French style remoulade is made with mayonnaise, mustard, capers, pickles, anchovies, tarragon, and chervil, so you can imagine how different it tastes.

Louisiana remoulade is often served with Maryland crab cakes, shrimp, chicken, or Po’ boy sandwiches. It is also nice with fries instead of ketchup. The following recipe shows you how to make a delicious remoulade which is really good with the crab cakes, although you could serve mayonnaise, tartar sauce, or ketchup with them instead if you prefer.
