Contrary to popular belief, the "mustard" is not fat, rather it's the crab's hepatopancreas, the organ responsible for filtering impurities from the crab's blood. Although many find its flavor distinct and delicious, it is recommended that you do not eat this since many chemical contaminants concentrate in the organ.

Mmmm pancreas contaminants.

McConaugha, who studies crabs, said the creatures' mobility seems to keep them remarkably free of contamination.

In fact, a survey of Chesapeake Bay crabs, including ones caught in the Baltimore Harbor, found them safe to eat by Food and Drug Administration standards.

I can search Google too!

You and CoC should check out their website.  They deliver crab cakes with cooking instructions to save you the drive.

I make my own and in my humble opinion they are better, LOL

OK, it’s not so humble!

I’ve catered parties and stuff and my crab related dishes always get good reviews.

Something to be said for fried.

My wife is partial to G&M. She did get a really good one at Dempseys a few years ago, when we stopped in there before a game.

I grew up 5 min from G&M! Crabs and crab cakes were basically the only food my family splurged on, G&M was the best. Also been to Timbuktu a few times but didn’t know they had good crab cakes. 

To the rest of the thread, I prefer broiled but fried are good on occasion. I like to make them too but won’t win any awards and would never put the mustard in them. I love soft shells too. Hope Mr. Servideo ends up spending a long time in Baltimore and learns a thing or two about this.

For instance I like to put crab mustard in with the crab meat.

I had liver and onions for the first time this month, and my impression of it was that it’s like a steak that tastes slightly of crab tomalley. They are, after all, the same organ on both animals.

Also, someone may turn up their nose in disgust and ask me to turn in my Maryland card, but my wife makes “crab” cakes pretty regularly with chunk light tuna. For $1 a can vs $20 a pound, we can eat those every night of the week and they’re darn delicious.

Never done tuna but I do enjoy a nice salmon cake with canned salmon.  Reminds me of my childhood.

Love GM ...But always have to add Old Bay to it. Had Jimmy's once a long time ago as its on the wrong side of town for me in Westminster. Also want to mention Costa's as they have good Crab Cakes. My father likes Pappas better than GM because he can get them fried.

 

 

The wife and I had lunch at Rocksalt Grille today.

I love a good salmon cake. I used to eat them in DC in churches who ran breakfast buffets.

Agreed, I have a couple cans of salmon in the pantry right now for the occasional salmon cake.

As for chunk lite, I don't mind tuna at all but I can't stand that stuff, I gotta go with solid albacore. "But makoman, why does that matter if you're chopping it up into a cake?" Shut up, maybe an aversion from childhood I don't know. I've never cooked up a tuna cake though, I'll have to try that so I appreciate the idea @Enjoy Terror, that sounds interesting.

I don't go much to Maryland anymore, even less in the future, but certainly one of the things I miss dearly is steamed crabs, crab cakes, and soft-shelled crab sandwiches done the right way. Does anyone know why Irish restaurants and pubs--at least here in NYC--often have crab cakes on the menu? Are they part of the standard cuisine in Ireland? In any case, they taste like sawdust or potato meal (depending on the place) compared to Maryland style.

Did you have the seafood club? Best value in the place! Crab Cake, Shrimp salad, BLT. I get it without bread. They give you a decent size crab cake (about 1/3 of GM, and 1/2LB of shrimp salad. They make homemade house cut fries. All for $15.00

When I was a kid duck pin bowling was the thing. All the bowling alleys sold cod cakes made in Baltimore. On two crackers with mustard. I remember really liking them! Not sure why

I second the Solid white albacore. I accidentally purchased some in oil once and it was gross!

    • He put up .5 WAR overall. Over a full season, maybe he is a 1 WAR player. I would guess most of his value came vs LHP. Ideally we would have a lefty hitting, RHP-mashing infielder to pair him with at 2B or 3B, and the two could combine for 2-3 WAR without costing much. I wouldn't lose much sleep if we nontendered but also wouldn't mind keeping another year in the absence of an alternative.  Gunnar, Vavra, and Servideo are all lefties but who knows when they will be ready. 
    • I think its interesting to fill out a 26 man roster with Davis on it and see how Nunez effects the at bats of other  young players.   Does it hold back Diaz from being called up in May because they are not at bats for him?  Nunez has no options so if he is on the team he has to be on the 26 man roster. I did it and had a problem finding at bats for Nunez.  I would be interested if you see the same situation.
    • To be clear - this is an "opportunity" that you believe will exist regarding Marcus Stroman and, in advance of this pending situation which exists in your head, you are bashing our ownership group in advance for their non-participation - fully aware of a massive uncertainty in our budget and how major league baseball will be played in 2021. Under what circumstances in the Marcus Stroman sweepstakes will you consider this fiction in your head to not have been an opportunity?  How many teams would have to be involved in pursuing Stroman?  What sort of contract length and duration would Stroman have to sign before you admit Stroman's signing will not represent any "opportunity"?   I expect Stroman to be on lists of top 10 2021 free agents and have now already found him on one - as the second most valuable or most sought after starting pitcher after Trevor Bauer.   I don't have an issue with investing into a future team with a good signing a year or two in advance or actually competing.  Given our financial situation, I don't think this off-season will be one where we attempt such a signing and I seriously doubt the Os will compete will much more currently competitive and well-financed for Marcus Stroman.
    • I don’t think the salary matters to be honest.  By that I mean, most teams will have 3 million to pay for his bat...if they need it.  I also don’t know that you can assume he gets 3M (or more). The question is, who needs a DH?  If the NL has the DH next year, it will be helpful but I don’t see that happening.     The need for his skill set is the bigger hindrance in trading him vs the salary imo. If we cut him, I could see Tampa or Oakland scooping him right up (if they have a need at that position)
    • I sort of feel like Bowie might get a bigger piece of the pie chart of the remaining development of all the guys who were there this summer as 2020 got them oriented to the motels, restaurants, grocery stores, etc.   AA was already the proving ground for blue chips anyway. This is my code for saying I have nary an objection should Adley/Grayson never see Frederick unless they're maybe pouring beers at a caravan stop.
    • Do you think Nunez has any trade value at a 3m salary?
    • Realistically, could we eat 1/2 of Cobb’s salary and trade him?  I’m not so sure on that one.    He’s not good enough to crack a “contenders” rotation, and he’s too expensive for a fringe contender to buy in the offseason.    I think we’ll some interesting trades involving any of the players in arbitration(Nunez, Alberto, Severino), or our “established” relievers that have some value(Fry, Armstrong) Just to clear 40 man roster space.  Given our SP situation, it’s looking like 2023 is the earliest that we could contend. Especially if we go back to the old playoff format.
