Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs

Warner Hall’s Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes

When it comes to experiencing the flavors of the Warner Hall region, there’s nothing like a good ole fashion crab cake featuring the freshest meat from the crustaceans from our very own Chesapeake Bay waters. Tip to know you’re eating a good crab cake? All you see is rich crab meat!

What You’ll Need:

1 lb.                     Fresh local crab meat

¼ Cup                Onion, diced

¼ Cup                 Red pepper, diced

1 Tablespoon      Grainy mustard

1                             Egg

To Taste               Salt & pepper

If Needed             Bread crumbs

Dash                     Tobasco

Dash                     Worchestershire

Dash                     Balsamic vinegar

What You’ll Do:

–       Sauté  the peppers and onions to until lightly cooked

–       Put in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients

–       Fold everything together

–       Add a little bread crumb if the mix looks too loose

–       Cover the mix and refrigerate for 4 hours (over night if possible)

–       Scoop (with an ice cream scoop for portioning) the crab mixture right into a pan for searing (grape seed oil works well)

–       Sear both sides and be careful when you turn them!

–       Arrange the crab cakes on a sheet tray  lined with parchment paper

–       Bake for 10 minuts in a 375 degree oven

Note:  These cakes seem very loose until you bake them in the oven. Because they are mostly crab do not deep fry.

Yield: 6 – 8 medium sized crab cakes

    • Teresa and Troy, What a fabulous palace you have! So glad we had the chance to stay with you recently. From the welcome you provided and the evening wine and delightful home-made snacks, to the lovely room we had and the superb breakfast, we really enjoyed our stay. You have a golden place in Warner Hall!

    • We all felt like we were living in a fairy tale because everything was exceptionally beautiful! The setting of Warner Hall is so peaceful and bucolic. The staff is terrific for how they are quietly at work in the background, making sure that everything is clean, ready and appropriately stocked. Every meal was spectacular! We were also impressed with how quickly you were able to get the ceremony area wiped down and ready for action after the rain.

    • My husband and I tried the Inn at Warner Hall because of an opportunity through Living Social. Our two-night stay was the best experience we have ever had at an Inn/B&B and feel extremely fortunate that this gem fell into our laps! The atmosphere was extraordinary – the bedrooms and common areas were beautiful!
