Cooking Up a Storm: Maryland Saltwater Coast-style crab cake recipe

ROSEMONT, Ill. (WLS) — We're preparing for a storm with a new venue near O'Hare Airport!

Saltwater Coast brings a taste of the sea, to Rosemont.

A new nautical style space just opened last week in the Parkway Bank Entertainment District.

Executive Chef Cruz Goler teams up with ABC7 to create Maryland-style crab cakes.


Maryland Style Crab Cakes

Chef Cruz Goler, Saltwater Coastal Grill

1.25 lb Crab meat (legs)

1.25 lb Crab Claw Meat

cup (+ 2 tbsp) Mayo

3 tbsp Dijon Mustard

1 tbsp + tsp Old Bay seasoning

bunch of green onions

2 eggs

1 Panko breadcrumbs

Juice from 1 Lemon


Drain the crab meat in a pan with holes for one hour. Mix in the panko, mayo, mustard, lemon juice, Old Bay, eggs and chives. Add the crab meat carefully, try not to break the crab meat too much. Let the mixture rest for 15 minutes. Form into a 6-ounce cake using a ring mold. While cooking, add olive oil to the pan to cook. Cook 3-5 minutes on each side until golden brown.
