Our Hoopers Island crab cakes are handmade and hand-perfected using our time-tested Phillips family recipe.
To end up with the most delicious crab cakes, we start with only the best quality crab meat. We fold the chilled crab into a classic Maryland-style sauce accented by hints of tangy mustard, zesty lemon, seafood seasonings and a touch of butter.
After portioning, they’re ready to be broiled or fried until golden. We serve them up with tartar sauce or a slightly spicy rémoulade.
