    Maryland is known for its crab cakes due to the abundance of blue crab in the Chesapeake Bay, but you can find beautiful lump crab meat in every state. Make simple delicious crab cakes from scratch, then smother them in this tasty sauce along with a little sliced lemon and some added herbs. This recipe is also a great way to jazz up store-bought crab cakes when you re short on time.
