Seafood Potatoes

Serve with a summer vegetable and basil salad-

My good friend, Liz H., grew up in Charleston, SC and shared this recipe with me that she’s been enjoying since childhood. I had never heard of Seafood Potatoes before, clearly a southern-thing, but they sure sounded delicious. These are really good and the recipe turned out to be super easy to prepare, always a bonus.

Maryland-Style Crab Cakes

Serve with tomato and Corn Salad-

I am always tinkering with recreating a true Maryland-style crab cake and I finally found a healthy version that brings back memories of growing up in the greater Philadelphia area with access to Chesapeake Bay classics like crab cakes.

The distinct difference between most crab cakes and a Maryland-style one is the Old Bay seasoning, a staple in most Maryland households. I have lightened up the coastal seafood delicacy by broiling rather than pan frying in oil. I did not miss the original fried version and rather preferred this lighter one. My crab cake recipe got two thumbs up from my southern-raised husband who spent many a childhood summers on the Chesapeake and my daughter who does not typically like seafood.
